    may want to check this thread: https://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.php?t=53416

    overall, you want a good GL-4 like Redline in your tranny and t-case. GL-5 is rated higher than your GL-4, however it's got some additive in it that's not good for your synchros. I went with Redline MT90, but have yet to do the fluid change. Good luck.
