    There's a nice writeup that's pretty recent in the Technical Chat section that may answer all your questions.

    Get about 9 quarts of gear oil, and fill the transfer case, and front diff till the oil comes out of the fill plugs. Then, its full. ;)

    You said the rear diff (3), the transfercase (2.somthing), and I figured you are doing the front as well (another 2.somthing). That will put you just over 8 quarts. Being as they dont sell partial quarts, you need to buy 9. ;)
