If you're referring to changing fluids and trans filter, you are overdue my friend. Yes, get that done asap. Check your owners manual or online owners manual for service intervals.

Re: Question on 5.7 hemi
You should notice a difference. I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I have 88K on my 07' that I just bought a month ago. I'm in the process of updating all maintenance items. Imo, in addition to the trans and diff service I'd also recommend these items be updated if you haven't already; plugs and wires, coolant flush, air filter, PCValve, EGR valve, MAP sensor, serpentine belt, power steering fluid flush, brake fluid flush, brake pads & rotors, clean throttle body, maybe O2 sensors, shocks, and I'd add a catch can. Not everything needs to be done right away, like valves and sensors, but I'd definitely work on getting most of these knocked out.

The best thing to do is read up on maintaining your 5.7 Jeep here and then get a game plan on taking good care of it. Most of these things can be done by you and don't cost a huge amount. I guarantee you'll have a much nicer ride. Definitely check out the all the great write-ups on the forum.:thumbsup:
