Thumbs up 545RFE Serviced- like a new car now!

Shout out to my dealer - Safford of Warrenton! I had the Jeep in for a leaking power steering rack and decided to go ahead and get them to do the transmission since its nearly time anyway. The fact that it was $300 (I have the deep pan so it costs a little more) and I didn't have to deal with a mess in my garage was worth it. The parts would have cost me anyway so I really only paid $180 for their labor.
Anyway, I fall somewhere in the middle of regular to severe service. With the rig approaching 64000 miles I wanted to go ahead and get it done. Let me tell you, the difference in how the trans operates is very noticeable! More responsive shifting, crisp upshifts and torque converter locks up sooner. I would recommend anyone get it done around the 60k mark if you haven't yet!
Combined with the new spark plugs, it drives like new again. I really could not have guessed that it would make this much of a difference. Curious as to what my fuel economy will do. Than is if I can keep my foot off the stupid pedal now
