You need to use what you have in there now. Some fluids aren't compatible with each other. If you using motorcraft use the LV. The transfer case takes motorcraft transfer case fluid not sp or lv like stated by someone above.

I just bought the truck a few weeks ago, so I'm not sure what fluids the last owner used, its just at 75k now, so I dont know if any of them have even beeen serviced yet.. I already did the oil and filters, and installed a coolant filter. I want to get everything done so I know where I'm at.. Thanks for all the replies
