Transfer case fluid

When or with how many miles should a transfer case fluid on 04 tj be changed?

How about the differential fluid?

I do the t-case and trans every 30k, and the diffs every 10k or so.

That is probably a good call. Most people do not change differential and transfer case fluids as it rarely if ever crosses their minds. The first thing I do when I buy a vehicle is to do all the maintenance because rarely are there records if it has been done.

Every 10k for diff does not sound right I think

it's pretty close to factory maintenance schedule "B", which calls for every 12k.

That's almost every oil change, synthetic oil at 7500...
I do diffs at 50-60k especially with a vehicle that's does not drive their car truck hard, towing etc.
I used to do my sti at every 90k but that was highway and 30-40k miles a year

I though I had a Dana 30 and a Dana 35 just to make sure I contacted Jeep and asked for my build sheet. This is what I have.

DJJS DANA 30/186MM FRONT AXLE
DMEP 3.73 REAR AXLE RATIO
DRKP HEAVY DUTY DANA 44 REAR AXLE
I was surprised. I wanted to change my diff covers to ARB but they are a little expensive for me right now so I might just re use the ones I got.

save your money for suspension, SYE/CV shaft, brake upgrades, etc. Those diff covers will create interference issues.

Really how so?
I am not getting them. I am going to keep the original ones, clean them up maybe paint them just to give them a face lift, and save my money like you said for something else.
