60,000 mi. Maintenance

I did all the maintenance on my Liberty for the 60,000 mi. mark. Was wondering if I should change the front and rear differential fluids, and transfer case fluid. I have heard of some people doing this, I would like some more opinions. Should I use the recomended lubes and such listed in the manual if I do change them, any recomendations on other lubes. Thanks in advance for the help

In the owners manual it has the recomended lube, and how to drain and refill the transfer case. But how much lube goes in the front and rear differentials.

The front diff has a drain and fill plug while the rear only has a drain plug. You must take the cover off the rear diff to get the oil out. Make sure you throughly clean both surfaces before putting new RTV on the diff cover. wait 30min or so then add oil to the fill hole with the Jeep level.
