ExtremeTerrain Pours On The Jeep Fluid Knowledge


As simple as it may seem, fluid maintenance can have a huge impact on the life of a vehicle, especially if that vehicle sees any hard living out on the trails. Not only do you need the right type of fluid in each component, but every tank, case, and housing needs to be filled to the correct capacity as well. Fluid capacity information is somewhere in the factory service manual…if you can find it. Alternatively, a quick trip online to a search engine or forum could probably generate an answer or two. But how can you be sure that it’s right?

ExtremeTerrain (XT) tries to make it as easy as possible for Jeep Wrangler owners to own, upgrade, and maintain their beloved road-tripping machines. That’s why they put together the ultimate fluid reference guide for JL, JK, TJ, and YJ Wranglers.

It’s a pretty comprehensive list that covers both capacities and fluid types for fuel, engine oil, coolant, transmission fluid, differential fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid. The quick-reference table format makes it a breeze to print out and keep in the glovebox or on the shop refrigerator.

And, as they do with most everything Wrangler-related, XT has a full lineup of fluids available in a variety of types for a variety of applications. Brands like Royal Purple and Mishimoto are made for the harshest of environments and can be a worthwhile upgrade over factory fluids. Visit XT or give the experts a call at (877) 870-8556.
