Good inexpensive transmission fluid

I plan to use this fluid until i drop in a performance engine and transmission. Wont handle 500 Horse Power but for factory or a little more this is good.

      This is good for use in Jeep Cherokee AW4 transmissions that require Dex 2 that is no longer available. The cheapest fluid I can find for doing drain and fills.

                      A:

                      I'm glad to assist, Jarvis! Your 1995 Jeep Cherokee requires ATF+4 transmission fluid in the transfer case. Typically, late model Chrysler vehicles, including Jeep, Dodge and Ram, utilize ATF+ type ATF in the automatic transmission and transfer case. Ford utilizes Mercon type ATF and GM uses Dexron type ATF.

                      Advance Auto Parts ATF+4 (Part No. A104) is the proper fluid to use in your 1995 Jeep Cherokee.
