What services should I ask to be performed?

I will be bringing my car to a dealer to perform a recall and small fix and while it is there I would like to perform other services needed at this point.

This is '11 (5 years old) WK2 Laredo X 4x4 with 3.6L engine.

It now has 30,000 miles of which 15,000 was put within last year and a half. I now drive about 10,000 miles/year mostly in city traffic.

Nothing ever broke on it. I bring it in for an oil change every 6 months to my local mechanic and he always checks everything and says no fluids need replacing. I did have engine air filter changed and cabin filter as well.

However maintenance schedule mentions following procedures:

  • Inspect the transfer case fluid and change if necessary.
  • Change the automatic transmission fluid and filter if
    using your vehicle for any of the following: police, taxi,
    fleet or frequent trailer towing (I don't).
  • Inspect the front and rear axle fluid, change if
    necessary.
  • Flush and replace the engine coolant at 60 months or
    104,000 miles (169,000 km) whichever comes first.
Car has Chrysler extended warranty (Max coverage) but I am sure none of fluid changes are covered.

Is it worth requesting any of these to be performed due to age? What are reasonable prices for these services?

Re: What service should I ask to be performed?

My sole opinion would be:
Coolant
Transmission
Differentials

Coolant due to time. It degrades weather in use or not. It loses lubricity and corrosion inhibiting properties.
Trans and diffs for the same reason and your driving habits. Stop and go traffic is a severe service. Especially 10 k worth.
The axles and transfer case are pretty easy. You can DIY in a couple hours. I have a how to in the DIY section.
