New from North Texas

Im new to this forum and to Jeeps. I just bought a 2003 Jeep Wrangler X. This is the story of the old man next door that wants to sell his jeep and it has low miles. My new Jeep only has 10000 miles on it. Thats were my question comes in. Do I need to service the diff's because it has not been used? He told me he has never put it in 4wd.

Thank for your help in advance

First thing I'd do is take it in the grass.. and put put it in 4-hi and 4-lo to get those factory juices flowing. I always say it never hurts to change every fluid when you buy a used automobile, but realistically.. 10,000 says it probably doesn't need it.

it should be all good, but I would change out some fluids and go through the gears to make sure.
Welcome!

Congrats on the new Jeep. I just bought my first jeep last July and it is a 2003 X. If you ever want to go wheeling in Oklahoma let me know. I wasnt as luck mine had 51K on it.
