So I had srt on lift and did all fluids...diffs, tcase and engine...drained t case for 20 min..surprisingly fluid looked great..not burnt or dark at all..srt has 37 k and this was 2 nd change..I read on wkjeeps that owners have reported fill range at 40-55 oz even though maintenance says 60 oz..that's weird cuz I thought the fill range is crucial..mine took 1.5 qts which is about 48 oz...I checked level with homemade dipstick and it was about 1 inch under fill hole..whats more dangerous..overfilling or underfilling?

i would say underfilling, but according to the manual overfilling is bad too. when i did mine i used the bottles the fluid came in , kept squeezing them in and some of the fluid came out so accrding to the ratio of how much spilled vs filled, i left it alone, not even mesured it and it has been fine no issues or no weird noises. In other words you will know when it fills up.

Not sure. I just installed a new Paramount tranny and Transfer case so I was familiar with the capacities. Not sure how much the converter holds. 2 Qts?? Just a guess.

Great info, I would do them myself as well unfortunately I have to go thru one of these oil change places as I have the extended warranty and need proof in case anything happens...

Your going to need right around 5 all together. Just fill them up until they overflow and let them sit for awhile until they are even with the fill hole before sealing them up. I got my transmission fluid still in my garage but i believe its 5 quarts as well.
