My wife has a 2002 Grand Cherokee Overland and I'm going to change her Transfer case fluid and diff fluid. Is there a recommended fluid that should be used on the transfer case? I have access to NAPA, Autozone and O'Riellys auto parts store. Also what is the transfer case capacity?

As for the diffs, I'm going to use 75-140 syn (according to the tag on the diff). Since I'm going with syn, do I need to add friction modifier?

Don't know about the G-Cherokee but my Wrangler takes ATF in the transfer case.

Your transfer case should hold 3.5 pints of Mopar NV247 Transfer Case Lubricant P/N 05016796AA. And it's probably a dealer only item because that's an oddball fluid.

For your axles, I use Redline and it says on the label that friction modifier isn't needed. Check whatever it is you're going to use to see if it calls for it. If you have the limited slip (Trac-Lok or whatever Jeep calls it) you'll need either the additive or to use a fluid that doesn't require it. Oh yeah, your front axle should hold 3.5 pints and the rear 4.75 pints.
