There are 2 maintainance schedules A and B. The severe usage cycle does recommend this interval to maintain the life of the axle under severe conditions. Schedule A is lube for life and no change is required.

If I received a letterin the mail about my wife's Libby and the current recall (her's is an '05), how long does it take to have checked out to see if her vehicle was one of the ones affected and does it matter if she is over the 36K mile mark?

I just can't help it sometimes.
This is within normal operation of the vehicle during heavy throttles and not harmful. Watch for police, however.

On the 2007 there were 2 additions I believe:
electronic throttle control and some other thing like EGR valve or something like that.

I thought I read the reason for both was to improve MPG.
Why then is the MPG rating still the same as every other model year?

All of the tires offered on KK have about a 29" OD. You can review Jeep.com for more specifics.

The T/C was made more robust to handle the torque loading of the 2.8L.

You're correct for the benefits of ETC and EGR. Although the EPA mileage label is not different for the 07MY Liberty, it's possible to achieve better real world fuel economy with the 07MY product.

With any recalls, we recommend contacting your dealer to set an appointment and to discuss the amount of time they will need to perform the service. We generally suggest being prepared to leave the vehicle for the day since dealer workload can vary.
