when i was chasing this on my truck.. Ford was confused.. it ended up being mercon SP from factory.. but ford has since released a specific transfer case fluild, that can be used going forward. 2 qts...

my bad... i looked back at my reciept and the notes on it.. dealer said mercon V can be used Mecon was original.. so i bought that. got home and bottle says not to put it in transfer cases (if i recall they didnt sell the older mercon any longer).. when i went back to dealer, and show them the bottle they were confused and didnt have a updated recommendation. I ended up purchasing the Mercon from autopart store.. then dug around the internet and found the Ford Transfer Case fluid was the recommended option now.

sorry for the mis info.. thx for corrrecting me .
