depends on how much off roading you do.and how old every thing else is.if the cooling is newish and clean around 5 years.trans if you push big tires maybe every 3 to 4.the diff every other year.the brakes go around 5 or when replacing parts.cut these times in half if you live in the woods.conflicting cause it depends on alot

I think my manual said to change diffs every 24k seemed like to much-but yeah probably time. Thanks for reminding me.
