Pay up, or don't :) !
If the manual says 60k for normal useage, then thats the requirement.
However, dealer's need income y'know ;) !

I would not change the fluids at 30K unless you bought the vehicle used or you have run it through some really deep water and may have some contamination. Check the levels with your finger or a zip-tie and see if there is evidence of water or other substances in the fluid. Scott

I would do all fluids at 60K but check the time on some of the new fluids. I think the new Jeep coolant is like 100K or some such. The crankcase oil is certainly the most important. I just did all of the fluids and belts on my Lexus 430 at 75K and the dealer said that they still looked great but it was preventative maint for me.

Yeah i was saying before 90k or something closer but

psyclops 03-12-2014 10:06 PM

But thanks any way i think that truck its in very good conditions plus my wife its the one most likely driving it so it ok
