The industry standard is every 30k.

In the liberty you have to rip up the carpet because it is on top of the gas tank. Im assuming its access to the gas tank?

I'll hijack too, since I'm in the same boat, 102K miles, and to the best of my knowledge (I'm the second owner), it's never been done. Great write up on how to do it on the link. I wonder why it's not in the scheduled maintenance for the KJ?
