30K update

Just rolled over the 30k mile mark since August 2014 and have had zero issues. Love the Jeep and it has been through 15+ inches of snow, mud and heavy rain. I will definitely go a different way on the next set of tires but so far the goodyears have made it.

Re: 30K update

good to hear it.

are you planning on doing the trans fluid at 40/50 ? I'm not sure if I trust the "lifetime" fluid, especially without a lifetime warranty.

Re: 30K update

Actually, went ahead and had it changed yesterday while it was in for an oil change. The "lifetime" fluid scares me a bit.

No problem. I believe it was right around $375 for the transmission fluid change.

$375 wow that's a bit of money for a fluid change. does this 8spd have a trans filter or is it just a drain and fill of fluid?

Re: 30K update

Wow! Thank you I knew that fluid was expensive. I'm not sure when I will change mine, maybe 60,000. I don't toe with mine, don't even have a hitch on yet. If the manufacture says "it's good for life" it should be go till 60,000 without much if any toeing. I would hope.

so if you have the lifetime maxcare warranty and you never change the fluid and the transmission blows up at 130k miles they cant get after you for not changing the fluid right because its "fill for life"

I don't believe in fill for life anything so that's why I ask lol

Re: 30K update

We have "lifetime" fluid in both vehicles. Both will be changed at 60K!
