Default LUBE GUIDE (slippery stuff)

ENGINE OILS:

Recommended: SAE 10W-40 (if usually below -10c then 5W30 ) and you want minimum API CH-4 or ACEA B4, of Diesel Oil .

*Penrite HPR5 Diesel 5W-40 or HPR10 Diesel 10W-50 both cost effective and meet MB approval 229.5.
Since mines getting on a bit i have gone to HPR15 Diesel 15w50 semi syn, works and is cheaper.


AUTO TRANS:
DO NOT USE ATF+4 or DEXRON:

Only use oil that has a MB spec of 236.10 or 236.14.
Mercedes..............001 989 21 03
Nulon....................Full Synthetic MultiVehicle ATF
Penrite..................Full Syn Multi Vehicle ATF or Semi Syn ATF
*Bilstein MB spec 236.10 from MB Spares.
Fusch Titan ATF 4134
Liqui Moly...................TOP TEC ATF 1200

Above oils have been used by AJOR blokes with no problems.

TRANSFER CASE:
The Mopar oil is very expensive so use Mobifluid 424.
Search for thread on subject but used by many the world over.
PM Lubricants.....PM313HP

DIFFS:

I have used NULON 80W-140 Full Syn LSD oil or Penrite ProGear 80W-140 Full Syn oil no need for additives,with no problems but it can be a can of worms. Depends on usage, some prefer Redline with additive.

POWER STEERING;
Do Not Use ATF or normal Power Steering Fluid.
Jeep......... MS-5931
Penrite.....PAS Fluid
Note: If your fluid has a reddish colour use the above fluids, if it has a clear or golden colour then use Mopar MS-10838 which is the later blend. The Jeep (Mopar) fluid is surprisingly usually cheaper.

COOLANT:

You need to use a 5year HOAT type coolant.
Nulon..........Longlife RED or Longlife Green fit the specs, Red lasts longer than the Green.
Penrite........4 year anti freeze anti boil coolant........................................... ............ Readily available so better than Mopar.

NOTE: Always use products that meet the correct specs, a known MB spec is better than a MS (Chrysler) spec as they can get confused with petrol jobs, while Mopar may be the recommended type other than being more expensive the other brands which meet specs are more widely available and is far better to top up with the same fluid than mix and match. I have only noted fluids other than Mopar/Jeep that have been used over long periods by myself or trusted AJOR members.
