recomended maintenance at 12,000miles??
 
so i went to my dealer for an oil change,tire rotation,and air filter...they then proceeded to tell me i needed a scheduled maintenance of my front and rear diff..are they just trying to milk me,or is this important.I could think of a couple other things to do with 400 bucks...thanks in advance

front and rear diff is done every 15k miles. you can do it yourself for like $50 and 90min of your time.

I would agree that it is important. But yes, it can be done much cheaper without much of a hassle if you do it yourself. Can easily be done without a lift

i was able to HAVE MINE DONE for little more than a hundo. indy oil change place. went in when it was empty. talked to boss. 25 each diff and 20 for the TC PLUS MY FLUID.

I gave him the 75/140 Mobil1 gear oil and I bought the TC fluid at the dealer. i think it was about 16 a qt but cant swear. m1 was in advanceauto sale........

im kinda mad that i have to pay someone to do my tcase change for me. the drain plug is rusted on and i can not get it off. so i am having the tire place change mine when i get my reps installed. you can do the diffs easily, just need 4qts of 75w140 mobil 1 and a small pump for the front diff. you have a 3.7 so you dont need any additive.

Page 422 of the 2010 WK Owners Manual says "at 18,000 miles (and every 18,000 miles), Inspect front and rear axle fluid, replace IF vehicle is used for police, taxi, fleet, off-road or frequent trailer towing".

Dealers will always try to sell you more than the factory recommended maintenance. Won't hurt the car, just your pocket book.

you are looking at service interval A. that is for grandmas that only drive in on sundays to go to church HAHA. service interval B is replace every 15k

I think if you read the manual properly the "IF" on my statement pertains to the equivalent of the old "Schedule B". However, it still says 18K miles, NOT 12K, NOT 15K.

Also for 2010, the owners manual does not list a separate listing for schedules "A" or "B", it is all listed on one page.

Again, it won't hurt the car, if you're willing to pay.
