Trusted local chain garage or Dealer for following maintenance

Hello,

For a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7, which of the following maintenance repairs can be done at a trusted big local chain garage instead of the dealer which charges almost double or more?

1. Engine Oil and Filter (Mopar at Dealer vs Castrol at chain)
2. Brake caliper pin lubrication
3. Inspection of brake linings
4. PCV valve change
5. Axles (Differentials), front and rear oil change
6. Parking brake, what does that mean? What do they check?

Thanks!

Re: Trusted local chain garage or Dealer for following maintenance

Hi for differential and transfer case fluid changes, is it better I buy the fluids from the dealer and bring it to the garage? They told me I don't need too...?


Transfer Case:


Automatic Transmission Fluid

Mopar ATF+4, type 9602
(p/n 05013457AA quart MSRP $8.75)
or
(p/n 05013458AA gallon MSRP $34.15)
(***Usage of other fluids/lubricants is not recommended***)
Transfer case drain plug torque: 15-25 ft. lbs/20-34 Nm


Differentials:


All models, all axles:

Mopar SAE 75W-140 Synthetic (API-GL5)
Mopar p/n 04874469 (MSRP $33.50 per quart)

Electronic axle notes:
Electronic (ELSD) axles require 118 ml (4 ounces) of Limited Slip Additive be added to the lubricant. (Mopar additive p/n 04318060AB $10.50 MSRP 4 oz. bottle)
ELSD axles are standard with Quadra-Drive II.
SRT8 axles DO NOT require Limited Slip Additive.

Axle cover bolt torque: Front and rear axle drain plug torque: 44 ft. lbs/60 Nm
Front axle cover bolts: 41 ft. lbs/56 Nm
Rear axle cover bolts: 30 ft. lbs/41 Nm

Re: Trusted local chain garage or Dealer for following maintenance

Those are all common items that any good garage can do or you can do yourself if you have the space/time. No need to buy any fluid from the dealer. You can get all the fluids from the garage you take it to or your local auto parts store.
Where are you located?

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.
