Purchase the correct fluid at a RAM dealer.

Just get some 80/90 or 75/140 or whatever gear oil is available. This is not rocket science. If you have a L/S be sure to get with additive or grab a bottle to add.

If you don't want to get it off of Amazon, all Tractor Supply stores carry it. It is a common gear oil used in tractors.
