    The manual states for the 4x4 offroad version with the " trans cooler" its closer to 4.2 quarts for differential fluid. In your guys experience was 4 quarts alone enough to fill the front and back?

    The manual states 4.2 for the rear and 1.6 (4WD) models for the front. So around 5.8 or 6 total?

    I had it read it wrong thinking it was 4.2 total

    You can probably get away with 6 total (since what's in the diff never completely drains). That said, I always buy the extra quart just in case something funky happens. Worst case scenario the extra bottle goes into storage for the next change.
