Hmm....50K...already

So just turned 51,000 on my 12 GC and had it in for service to take care of a couple recalls. They also recommended to replace the fluid on front and rear differential as well as the transfer case. Which I did once I got them to come down on the price some. They said the super synthetic fluid was very pricey.

What has everyone else been doing as far as preventive maintenance? Or what else should I be doing down the road?.. Maybe tranny fluid..?

Re: Hmm....50K...already

I have 3500 on mine and since it is so easy to service the t-case and diffs, I have drained and refilled twice. I was amazed at the pearl in the fluids from break in. Note I have a 5 gallon pail of Redline 75w-90, and plenty of Amsoil atf, so cost was cheap.

Similar mileage as my 2012 Limited. I bought "Marmaduke" May 11th in 2012 and have 44500 miles on it now. No trouble at all with the Jeep.

Re: Hmm....50K...already

March 2012 Summit, just ticked over 66,000. Gosh those oil changes come up fast. Other than DRLs that seem to burn out a lot, just oil changes and tires. Happy me!

Re: Hmm....50K...already

Charlie, I changed my DRLs to LED and that "fixed" the short lifespan issue with them.

Since my original post that started this thread, I'm just approaching my 56K mile "earl change" and continue to thoroughly enjoy my JGC.

Re: Hmm....50K...already

Finally clicked over the 90k miles mark this week on my 2012 Overland. Its been close ive been rounding up for a month now.

So far I've removed the DRls, tires, and oil changes. Brakes are coming up soon. I'm getting an occasional long crank which worries me and still have 3 recalls open. Out of the 21 cars I've owned over the last 16 years this one is the one I've owned the longest and my favorite. It will be a sad day when I put her out to pasture to rot on a lot.

I will find another Overland or Summit soon enough.

Good to hear that yours has been a good running rig. I put 222,000 on my last car, a 2001 Honda CR-V that I bought new and kept for 15 years. I would love to get 300K or 400K out of my Diesel. Maybe more!
