ATF and about 2 qts. Use a 6-point socket or box wrench on the fill and drain plugs - they are magnesium and will round off very easily. Lightly wire brush the threads on the plugs to clean off the old sealant and put some teflon paste on just to fill the threads.

For a Manual T-Case use Dexron III Automatic Transmission Fluid.

For a Automatic T-Case use Auto-Trak II Fluid GM Part # 12378508

Correct!! NO DMAX has an "auto" transfer case. If you don't have a big round button at the top of the selectors saying "AUTO" (and only 1500s do) you use ATF.

there is a sticker on there saying use dexron II or III. just wanted to make sure, and thanks for clearing up the "auto" i figured only the 1500's had that.
