Default Differential fluid

Hi,I have have a 02 Dakota 2wd 3.9 auto.I have removed an replaced the gasket around the rear differential cover an sealed it.I was refilling the fluid an wanted to if the level needs to be right below the fill hole.I have put in 2 quarts in an it's right below the hole.
I have the 10 hole type cover ,i belive its the 8 ring,or smaller of the 2.
The info I've pulled up says it takes a little more than 2 qts ,2.2 to 2.4..
Any suggestions on if I should add more or if this matters.
Also on 1st drive what is the best way to drive it?
Thanks

Fill the deferential through the fill hole as you describe. Once full, the lube will want to run out and this is the time to replace the plug. It's not necessary to wait until the fluid stops running out completely and you'll naturally lose/use some over time.
