i've got an 04 rubi with the 5spd tranny and i've been trying to find the fluid capacities for the dana 44s, transfer case, and manual tranny. havent found anything in the owner's manual or jeep owner's bible that tells me specifically and I havent found a haynes or chilton manual that is updated with the rubi's specs. i'm planning on ordering RedLine MT90 for the tranny and 75w90 gear oil for the diffs (has friction modifiers for the lsds) but i need to know how much of each i should get. should i go with mopar instead? i've never heard a complaint from those using redline.
anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated. and if anyone has a cheap/free source for a factory service manual, i'd really like that.
thanks

Redline or Amsoil are both great products. Mopar is fine but costs WAY TOO MUCH. Last I new Mopars synth fluids were @ $32 a quart from the stealership.

I beleive that the Rubes still require 75w135 or 90w135 gear oil......its on the tags on the diffs...I dont remember exactly which it was.
