I think Inferno's local dealer sold him 2 quarts for $70.

You can get it online cheaper though. I bought 2 quarts from moparstore.com for $56.45 shipped.

If you dont mind a few days wait it is much cheaper to buy it online and do it youself.

Do the diffs need any special additives or just the 75w140 I know on the truck I had to add limited slip additive with the 75w140/120

We are NOT limited slip (YET), therefore no additive.

RE: Fluid Capacities

When I changed my fluids not too long ago, my front diff drained 45 ounces from the factory fill, and was actually slightly overfilled as it poured out of the filler plug when removed.

Mine took 44 ounces to refill, it did not want any more. I subsequently checked it a couple of weeks ago, it was still full to the bottom of the filler plug.

All your other capacities jive with what came out of mine.

So the correct capacity for the front and rear differentials is just inder the fill hole?

I pulled this up for the tranfercase from a Chrysler Techs handbook

Grand Cherokee SRT8
Transfer Case Fluid Service
The Grand Cherokee SRT8 will be arriving at
dealers any day now and we wanted to remind
you that it will introduce a new transfer case, the
NV146. There are a couple significant differences
with the fluid and fill level on this transfer case
compared to other Grand Cherokees.
First, t he fluid full l level is 1-1/8 inches below the
bottom of the fill plug. This is different from the
other Grand Cherokee applications. Second, the
proper fluid is Mopar NV146 Transfer Case Fluid
(Part number 68001758AA). This fluid is also
different from other transfer case applications,
and any other fluids are not recommended. It is
important that the transfer case not be overfilled
and that the correct fl ui d i s used. This is important
information for the people doing PDI on these
vehicles and anyone who services these transfer
cases. Past experience has shown us that having
the fluid fill level below the fill plug can cause
some confusion.

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes.

Nice Jeff.

As cheesy as this sounds im making a dipstick for the transfer case from a wire hanger, 1 foot in lenth with the end bent to 1 1/8" 90 degrees.
