Welcome to CF!

Chrysler has a list of approved manufacturers of ATF+4, but I'm pretty sure Castrol is on that list. Check on the bottle to see if it states it's approved.

During the time your jeep was built, Chrysler owned jeep, so where is the problem? ATF+4 has some expensive additives in it so only major producers are approved by Chrysler. I wouldn't worry about Castrol, Valvoline, Mobil, Quaker State, or any other major brand.
