Use PAG 46 on it. A lot of places only carry PAG 100 because it's in between PAG 46 and PAG 150 and think you can use it in anything. Use what the compressor calls for.

Chrysler cars call for 46 and the trucks usually take 100. Either will be fine.

The correct lube for this compressor (Sanden SD7h15) is PAG 100 (ISO68). It does matter which lube is used. The use of a 'lighter' viscosity lubricant may lead to excessive compressor noise and possible bearing failures.
Also notice that on the Sanden compressor there is a 15mm bolt in the case. This is the preferred location for adding lube to the compressor.
Another major component failure on this vehicle is the condenser, especially after a catastrophic compressor failures.
