1. Do you have to change out the differential and transmission fluids if you traverse through water and mud? Or is this equipment sealed properly as a stock model driving off the lot.
2. Same question for alignment. Do you check your alignment every time you go off-roading if you rock climb or hit some real crevices?
Thanks in Advance

I keep an eye on my fluids, but I don't change them out after every trail run. I drive through some deep water and don't have any issues. Just check them routinely and make sure that your breathers are high.
Your second question. Your jeep should have solid front axles on the front and rear. They can take a beating. There should be no reason to align after a trail run unless you bent something.
