Oil: Castrol/Pennzoil 10w30
AutoTrans/X-fer case: Aamco ATF+3
Axles/Manual Trans: Valvoline or Parts store brand 80w90 GL5
Some people use synthetics, I prefer plain old dinosaur oil.

interesting note....

i made even more calls, 2 dealershits, both warned against using 75w/90 in the transmission: WAY TOO THICK.

i think this is why last winter when i changed the fluid in my manual AX5 i roasted 5th gear within 2 months.

obviously they had to recommend using mopar trans. fluid but noted that 30W was probably sufficient.
