After I posted it, I found several other threads concerning the same or simular issues with power steering fluid. I guess they have red too, but they wanted me to use the clear. I can take it back and may do that after a couple of days. They looked at the specs per my 2004 Grand Cherokee Overland, they went to the manufacture service dept by phone and neither produced anything in regards to the numbers my manual suggested I use. If it were my vehicle, I'd get an aftermarket equivalent of the correct fluid from a name brand vendor like Valvoline, etc.
So this morning I went to our local dealer to get some steering fluid.

No fluid listed for the 2004 Grand Cherokee. It hard to imagine that we cannot use other power steering fluids, but I don't want to screw up if it does make a difference. I'm not sure why the resivor needs topping off, but it does look low. Use of any linked web site provided in a product review or post is at the user's own risk. I did this hoping they might have an old dust covered qt on the shelf. Any statements posted constitute the statements of the poster and are not the statements of Grainger.
Per everything within all the threads concerning power steering fluid here at The Jeep Garage, I think it's very important to use the right stuff. I'll take it back with the correct number if anyone has the right number. It looked a little low and so here I am! I park in a heated garage and so I think I would see a spot, but I don't. I will take back the qt I purchased from Dellen and most likely will never use them again. . They told me that it was no longer available.
Thanks Again for all the tips and suggestions. They could not find it at all. Use year-round to prevent corrosion, wear, and oxidation. . . . .
