I have asked that question as well and found that the diffs are SAE 90, Transfer case 75W90 for the VG150, 85W90 for non VG150, the 300GE will be 15W40 but I put 5W40 in mine.
For the gearbox you need the Part number on the side of the gearbox as that will determine whether it is Transmission fluid or 75W85, a huge difference so it's important to get it right

Be careful to also use the correct GL number - i think it is GL 4 in the transfer case and GL 5 in the diffs - why this is i have no idea but it is apparently important.
