Since I'm moving out of my condo soon, I already moved my tools and stuff into a relatives garage till I get settled in a new place and its time for an oil change. So I'm just going to take it to valvoline down the street instead of doing it myself which i preffer to do. I baught my TJ with 59,000 miles on it from a dealership and I just rolled over 75,000 about 300 miles ago. Should I have them change any of the other fluids like transfer case and front and rear diffs while I'm there or should I wait and do that myself once I'm settled in somewere new?
Id just wait, I hate having other people work on my Jeep. Just dont wait too long. For the diffs, tranny, and transfer case; check the fluid. I usually try to change the other fluids every 40k, but I dont think its necessary.

Yeah, I don't like having people work on my jeep either, but the oil change deffinitly can't wait. I just ask because 75,000 is one of those milestones I've always used as a rule of thumb to do maintanence on my vehicals. Just like at 100,000 miles.
Go buy a cheapie 3/8 ratchet, the correct socket and one of the oil filter sockets that go on the oil filter, then pickup a $1.00 aluminum turkey cooking pan from the local shop rite and change it, thats what a 10 minute job.
