I am going to give the jeep a service next weekend it will be th first one since i owned it and was going to change the oil/ filter with 10/30 i think this is right.

 

also i was going to change the auto trans oil and diff oil can you please advise which type / brand is better for a reasonable budget and does anybody know if this will be able to be brought at donnington on sunday ?

 

Also going to do the air filter , dis cap leads and plugs.

 

its got service history apart from the last 11000 miles so was thinking of doing most things so i know where it is at with servicing

 

any advice on anything else to do / oils will be welcomed

 

any advice

Engine 10W40, semi synthetic is fine.

Gearbox Mopar ATF+4 or equivalent DO NOT USE DEXRON II

Transfer case Dexron II is fine.

Front axle 75W90 GL5

Rear axle 75W90 GL5 but recommend upgrade to full synthetic 75W140 as the bearings are made of cheese.

Rear axle also requires limited slip differential friction modifier.

is this a additive to the lubricant?

It is but....

You can get fully synthetic diff oil with the friction modifier already added for LSD

Works OK for standard diffs also.
