These are the recommended fluids that I pulled from the Dodge service manual. As always, Dodge recommends to use their product or one of equal quality.

tranny fluid: is Mopar Manual Transmission Lubricant
transfer case: Mopar ATF +4 Automatic Transmission Fluid
front and rear diffs: Mopar Synthetic Gear Lubricant 75W-90

If these are not correct, I'm sure that some here will chime in.

Here's a link, so that you can download the PDF version of an 04' Dodge truck manual. You can find all sorts of useful stuff in it. I got this from someone else here on this site. Scroll down the page and it will be on the left of the screen under the picture of an almost naked girl.

NV5600 transmission calls for a 5W30 Synchromesh transmission fluid. Not to be confused with a 5W30 engine oil. I have an NV5600 in my '02 and run this fluid: https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/mtf.aspx?zo=1206252

Your transfer case calls for an ATF+4 lubricant. I run this:https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/atf.aspx?zo=1206252

Front and rear diffs call for a 75W90 or heavier gear lube. With aftermarket horsepower mods, I recommend stepping up to a 75W110 fluid (new API category), and if you haul/tow at GVWR most of the time, stepping up to a 75W140 will provide the most protection for heavy use. I run the 75W110: https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/svt.aspx?zo=1206252

I have found that every fluid affects every NV5600 differently...so if one doesn't work well, try another. And what works in that guy's NV5600 might not work so well in yours'. If you are satisfied with the factory fluid, stay with it...changing to another brand might make things worse (shifting).

With that said, I run Royal Purple Synchromax in the tcase with excellent results to date. It is the thinnest of the synchromesh-type fluids and closer to ATF in viscosity than a light gear oil...

I run a blend of Redline MTL and MT-90 in the NV5600. I have ran about every synchromesh-type fluid in my NV5600 (including Amsoil, RP, Pennzoil, and Redline) and redline seems to hold up the best in MY trans.

You might also read about additives in the NV5600, I have yet to find one that worked...I have used LSD modifier, LubeGuard Gear Supplement, and Lucas Tranny Fix...and again, what worked/didn't work in mine, might work great in yours.

And I run Royal Purple 85w140 in the rear...there is a recommendation (from dodge) to run 75w140 if you tow any...the 75w90 is actually a fuel economy thing more than a wear thing. I find the 85W140 provides a cooler running rear diff.

Just my thoughts...

For the G56 manual, AMSOIL ATF is what I recommend.
