I have a 95 YJ with a 2.5L. I went to the parts store to get 75-95 gear lube and Dextron II ATF. 3 stores later I couldn't find either! Gear lube was 80-95 and ATF was Dextron III. Does it matter? What do you guys run?
Thanks in advance!

As for diff/standard tranny lube they 80/90 weight is the better choice than the stock 75/95. This also goes along with the oil that the manufacturers recomend for the newer vehicles like 5w-30. All of the lower than normal weight and viscosities you see the newer cars running now-a-days is all for the higher HP increases. Use 10w40 in the summer and 10w40 in the winter. If you read yourmanual they will also tell you to change your oil at 7000 to 9000 miles! The best if you can find it is 140/90 synthetic diff/standard tranny fluid. As for the automatic tranny fluid(ATF) use the Dextron III, it is the next step up but also a multiviscosity mix for all makes and model trannies.
