Changing axle fluids

Is it a difficult job and are any special tools require. What needs to be done to be able to change the fluids as I think my axles may need a fluid change? It is a 2005 GC 3.0L. Thanks.

No it's a kid game , for the rear you or you unbolt all the diff cover clean everything ( sealing surface also ), and fix it again with new sealant or
you remove the cap and drain it with a pump and refill

for the front axle you need a allen key 15 (if I remember well ) to unbolt drain screw and filling screw

Thanks. I think I will get it done at the local non franchise Jeep dealer. Jeep UK want nearly 300 per axle and the non franchise only 150 including all fluids.
