Page 577 does not give interval of diff changes, page 609 starts the detailed services and the diffs are not mentioned in them NOR is there a list found on 680 of your link in the SRT owner's manual. So while I thank you for the link, I hope that you understand why I posed my original question despite already seeking my owners manual (I have printed page 680 and added it to my owners manual).
The 4x4 service is $500 for both diffs ($240 per diff alone) and the transfer case ($160 alone) from my dealer, however two things came up when I went to pick up my SRT.
1. The dealer decided to not do the transfer case service since it was 10k miles too early.
2. They stated that the drain plug on the transfer case is stripped.
Despite it being early, changing the transfer case fluids early would of been more cost effective since I paired $480 for the diffs and will have to pay $160 within the next year to get the transfer case done vs paying $500 with the 4x4 service. Also, the last transfer case service was done by the same dealer and now they're saying the drain plug is stripped but cannot give me a reason why or what they are going to do about until I go to service the transfer case in 10k miles... Dealer was nice enough to credit me $160 on todays service so the total balances out.
That is just highway robbery for what they charge to change those fluids. I know not everyone wants to DIY but these are simpler and take less time than an engine oil change and they are charging that for them just crazy
including shipping there is probably $82 of OEM fluid for both diffs and the T case that's for us to buy it dealer gets it for far less than that.
each diff and tcase is a simple drain and fill literally probably 5 minutes each.
The OEM fluid for your diffs 05136035AA you need 3 quarts ($40) plus $10 for the friction modifier so about $50 on fluid for both diffs
transfer case is 5013457AA you need 2 quarts ($14)
add shipping for me it was $82 for all fluid and shipping
