64k service?

My 2012 JKUR is going to be coming up on 64k miles soon so I called my dealership and asked how much the 64k service would be. I was a tad shocked at the price tag of $1,024. With the list of maintenance that would be done is this cost worth it? I'm thinking that maybe the 3rd thing on list of installing the lube sticker might be worth the cost alone

Recommended Maintenance (26CHZ--64K3)
64,000 MILE INTERVAL SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE - NORMANDIN CHRYSLER JEEP DODGE - PREFERRED PLAN
* Replace Engine Oil and Filter (up to 5qts)
* Check / Adjust Tire Pressure to Specs
* Install Lube Sticker Every 8,000 Miles
* Rotate Tires and Inspect for Wear, Visually Inspect Brake Linings
* Install Washer Solvent
* Inspect All Drive Belts-Check Tension
* Inspect Front Suspension, Tie Rod Ends and Boot Seals

Although this schedule may contain manufacturer's general recommendations our maintenance schedules are designed to meet the demands of area weather and driving conditions.

The only service you might need is in bold. I don't think you would want to pay 1K for it. If you went to a private shop, the oil change would be approx. $30-35 incl. 6qts. and filter, air filter 25, rotate tires 25 (visual brake inspection free). Total: less than 100 at least. Maybe it could be a bit more, but not much depending on the shop.

Lol. You don't need nearly any of that crap. Oil changed, air filter, tire rotation,tranny fluid change, ....that's maybe $200 at a normal shop. They are ripping you a new one bud.

I'm not anti dealer, many do good work, even if perceived as more expensive. My friends that are techs at local dealers will tell you most of the sub 80-100k mile services (minus timing belts on engines that require them) are a "feel good" purchase. I'd ask for a quote on the recommended fluid changes only.

Do what I did and read the owners manual. It has most of the service that needs to be done and at what intervals. Some items could vary if you offroad/tow often.

This should help pare down your list.

Everything underneath the Jeep I've seen is simple drain and fill. The canister style oil filer takes a bit of getting used to the first time you seat the new filter o ring snug and don't over tighten the plastic housing. The front and rear diffs, assuming you get the proper fluid for trac loc if needed, is a 10 minute ordeal with a hand pump. The transmission and transfer case will have drain plugs and fill plugs. I'd guess if you had all the tools handy you could accomplish all this (drain and fill every fluid), you'd be at about $150-$175 for parts and a couple hours of labor including beer breaks, and will have changed out every fluid in the Wrangler. 90% of that list is BS and won't ever be done (inspect this, inspect that). Nonsense and at $1000+ what a rip!
