According to wk2jeeps, the coolant is a different formulation for the 2013+ models (the new MOPAR OAT coolant is rated for 10 years or 150,000 miles), whereas the 2011-2012 models use the MOPAR HOAT coolant which is rated for 5 years or 100,000 miles.

Unless you are auto crossing the Jeep and getting the brakes red hot all the time, the brake fluid will still look new even after 3-4 years. When brake fluid boils, that is when it the air bubbles build up and the brakes can get very soft.

Re: Low Mileage Service Requirements

I'd do the oil once a year at that rate.
I have the same issue with a Kubota Tractor that I only put about 15-20hrs a year on. where a 100-200 hrs a yr is more common.

Re: Low Mileage Service Requirements

If your a DIY type I would spend some quality time under the Jeep and change the diff fluids and T-case fluid and put some good Synthetic fluids in. I would also do a drain and fill on the coolant.

As mentioned if your only doing 5k per year, I would use a good synthetic oil and change once a year
