2012 wrangler fluid change

I have a 12 jku auto that I bought new in 2012. I have of course been changing the oil regularly. My question is about differential fluid and Trans fluid. How often do Yall change your fluids and what type do you use. If have not switched to synthetic motor oil yet but may was thinking on using synthetic in transfer case and differentials. Any thought or guidance will be appreciated.

Change transmission fluid at recommended mileage (or before) to retain powertrain warranty. Same for transfer case (use MOPAR or equivalent). Put synthetic in axles and then double the recommended mileage between services. That's how I roll anyway.
