from what I understand the ax5 and ax15 gearboxes require a GL3 oil.

therefore according to Royal Purple and other Jeep forums a straight 10w-40 engine oil should be used in these transmissions in lieu of Synchromax, otherwise the synchros will slowly destroy themselves.

Agree about the GL3.
I researched this yesterday before getting the oil and from reading on this forum and some US sites I understand synchromax is compatible with GL3 and is used frequently in ax15 boxes

Mechanical clutz question again ... is Redline oil fine in any gearbox? Don't know what's in my '05 TJ but I'm keen to use only the best of the best.

Tried to buy some at Repco today but they didn't have it. Where do you buy this liquid gold?

Yikes boys, how much does it cost & how much does a girl need? Rang Autobarn & the bloke sounded like he'd never heard of it ... said they don't carry it.
