Post 2004 Xterra what fluids to change and what to use

Ok so so just got a 2004 Xterra with 104k miles on it about 3 weeks ago. Me and my dad did the timing belt maintenance today and man did it need it, it had a lot of slack in the belt and the belt showed signs of wear. My next task is to do all fluids which I think are as follows transfer case,front and back diffs, transmission fluid and engine oil change. I wanted to make sure these are all I need to change as far as fluids go and also what type of fluid do I need for the diffs front and back and what type of fluid for the transfer case and transmission?

Plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotary cap are next on my list after fluids are taken care of.

You can use GL5 in GL4 applications.

This example is for a BMW GL4 to GL5 example but principle is the same and this is straight from the fluid manufacturer:
