Doesn't the manual say anything? I never paid attention since I didn't have one...
I looked through the project-jk website more and it explained the manual tranny fluid and transfer case fluid change more. It seems pretty easy.

He means the differential gear oil.

I change my oil every 6000 miles, gear oil in the differentials at every-other oil change, and transfer case fluid at 30,000 mile intervals.
Blinker fluid is optional.

I have just under 15K miles on my Jeep. So sometime in the next coming weekends I'll be doing it myself. It's pretty easy to do, theres a plug on the top and on the bottom. Just drain and fill. Go go royal purple.

12k - 18k maintenance

Hey guys,

I was wondering what do you guys do to your jk's when you get to 12k miles on as far as maintenance. I've been changing the oil every 3k miles and rotating the tires including the spare. I have a manual tranny is there anything I should be doing as far as inspecting the tranny fluid? If so how do you even do that on a manaul. My last car was an automatic so there was a dipstick. I was reading the manual and it also talked about checking the axle fluid. How do you check the axle fluid? If it does need to be replaced how easy is it to do that? I'm more than willing to lkearn how to do these maintenance things myself rather than taking it to a dealer.
