60k Service
 
Front Diffs - Mopar Gear oil 75w-140 w/ friction modifier.
T-Case - Clean, no service done
Rear Diffs - Amsoil Gear oil 75w-140 w/ friction modifier.
Spark Plugs - Champion 570 copper plugs (16)
Air filter - AEM dryflow filter cleaned w/ AEM cleaning solution.
Oil Change - Mobil 1 5w-20 w/ K&N oil filter

Front diff was done by the dealer b/c I had a bad diff. bushing that needed replacement and they did the front diff fluid at the same time for the cost of parts alone (still got ripped off).

Rear diff, plugs and oil change was done at Dito's Motors for a total labor cost of $185, which is a tick over two hours time. I went with Amsoil fluids for the rear diff, had the inside cleaned out, and instantly all the chatter that I had been getting disappeared. VERY happy about that. The old spark plugs showed good wear and looked like they could have gone another 10k miles. I think I'm going to use iridium plugs next time.

I got home and did the air filter cleaning myself. I know, hella hard work.. I'm a champ.

Overall my mileage is back up, and the Jeep sounds and runs better. This thread is for reference and should not be used as fact, you are responsible for your own work.

I'd personally stick to the champion coppers. I'm pretty sure others have experiences bad idle/missing/stalling when using iridium/platinums in the 5.7

Word. That's why I did so this time.. I will do so again. I just 'heard' from the shop that iridium extends the life of the plugs v. copper and has no other effect.

Yeahhhh gear oil isn't the best smelling stuff lol.

I probably would have changed the t-case oil too just to know it'd done and it won't need to be done for another 60K miles. It's really easy too, and the fluid is only like $12/quart at the dealer... $24 for that kind of piece of mind is worth it to me.

I can't stand the MDS on with my CMR tune.. at lower speed you can feel it lug on and off every time.. no matter how hard I try I can't get close to 19 mpg with the MDS off.

About the service you need.. just look at your manual or go to http://wkjeeps.com/wk_maintenance.htm and see what you have done lately and how long ago it was. Keep your records to track shyt like that .. 60k is usually a big service interval on all cars... how many miles do you currently have on your ride?
