Default Transmission, transfer box, differential oil advice.

Hi, My 2007 outlander has 85000 miles and has never had the transmission, transfer box or differential oils changed.
The manual states ,
Manual Transmission : dia queen multi gear oil spec gl3 75w-80.
Transfer : hypoid gear oil gl-5 90
Differential: hypoid gear oil gl-5 80w

I have found the following oils.

Transmission : Red line synthetic manual MTL 75w-80 gl4.
Transfer and differential : Motul hd 80w-90 extreme pressure gear & differential oil. API GL4 and GL5.

Can anyone advise if they will be ok or suggest alternatives.
Many thanks.

I changed my transfer case and rear diff at about 60-75k miles and put Mobil1 75w90 in both. Around 170k, I changed a rear output shaft seal and fluid looked real good.

I think you'd be good with your redline.

The owner's manual for the 2010 Outlander SE (with AWD) says to change the transfer case fluid at 60K intervals. I have run into some confusion at mechanic shops about requesting this service: they will refer to it as 'differential' fluid; and there's some confusion about whether it is the front or the rear differential that needs the fluid change. So which transfer case is the manual referring to?

There is a front and rear differential and a transfer case. Front diff is integrated into the transmission and uses transmission fluid. Tcase is up by the transmission and uses gear oil. Rear diff is where you'd expect it and uses gear oil.

When I changed my factory fill for tcase and rear diff at 60k miles...it was gross, very dark...replaced with mobil1 synthetic. Checked it after 100k during rear output shaft seal and looked almost new... I dont tow or really over work the fluid...so i dont think we are really burning it up.
