Jeep 4wd service

Jeep wants to do 4WD service on my wife's 2005 Grand Cherokee (about 96,000 miles) - cost about $400. No warning lights or anything and I can;t find the "normal service" recommendations. Does this sound about right or are they trying to sell me something I don;t need yet?

It would depend on what's included in the "service".

Repack wheel bearings?
Change differential fluids? (3)
Trans fluid?
U joints?
etc?

I don't know how mechanically inclined you are but all of that can be done diy. You could also check prices at some of the other repair shops as dealers are usually the highest priced.

IDK my 1996 truck has never been done...134k miles. I did do the tranny fluid and filter at 70k.

I only checked the fluids in the transfer case, front and rear diff once at the 70k mark . Was not low.


I think if you do off roading in streams and stuff its recommended.


I will have to look in my manual to see what it says. Just think how often do you change the diff fluid in your car?

Bogey,

Don't do it. With only 96.000 miles no need to. You can do it when you get close to 200.000 miles. BTW: Never have you transmission "Power Flushed". You're truck may never move again (especially in reverse).

Thank You
Amy
