Wink Service schedule advice

I need some advice please on a 2009 rubicon that's for sale.
Firstly over here rubicons are extremely rare, there's plenty of 2.8CRD JK's but I've only ever seen two 3.8L petrol rubicon's.
My question is about this 2009 rubicon with 17000 miles on the clock. The guy selling it said its got a full service history, so I emailed him wanting more details on the servicing it's had, he claims he had it serviced by a jeep dealer at 7204 miles then he claims it's next service is due at 22500 miles, It's just coming up to 3 years old, is he right or talking rubbish.
If he's got the servicing wrong should I walk away, I really want a rubicon but don't want problems with the engine in the future because The first owner messed up the servicing.
Really need advice on this so thanks in advance.

Don't know what happened in the '09 maintenance sched., but

My '08 JKUR Maintenance Sched.--says

6000-or 6 months

12,000-or 12 months

18,000 or 18 months-

Now I doubt that the eased up on the maintenance Sched. so, it looks like the jeep you're looking at has a maintenance "GAP"--doesn't prove any things wrong, but

You're dealing with a RARE Ruby in your area, so I'd be a little more careful !!

Especially gas Vs Diesel !

Good luck
