Default Does Synthetic or conventional come from dodge?

Does anyone know if dodge uses synthetic transmission/ rear end fluid from the factory?

I'm pretty sure they use ATF+4 and regular gear oil in the rear end.

Just looked in my owners manual. It is indeed synthetic in the rear ends. The tranny is ATF+4
