What kind of Anti Freeze

My Freightliner Chassis has a Cat 350 Diesel. My Info Check says "Low Coolant". The tag near the radiator says "Freightliner Spec. Alliance 48-25134-001".
Is this a special kind of anti-freeze? Can I top it up with any other kind of anti-freeze, and if so, what should I buy? Also, what kind of oil should I use in my front wheel hubs?

Here is a thread that will either answer all your questions or confuse you even more:

The coolant you should put in is made for Cat engines. You can get it a Cat dealer or maybe a truck stop or if you know someone that works on big rigs they may have it.

X 2 on the Cat antifreeze. We run it in Cat, Mack and Volvo engines. It is premixed and ready to go. Most truck and Cat dealers sell it. In the front hubs any good rear end lube works. Lucus makes a cute little bottle you can reuse, sold in most truck stops.

Any fully formulated HD diesel antifreeze will work with your Cat. If all you are doing is adding coolant then the 50/50 NON EL is what you want
