Opinion???
Sorry but not just an opinion, many training's / bulletins from Goodyear and BFGoodrich while I worked for them in management positions. They have set standards on what tire size/ tread width etc a tire is compared to wheel width.
So no its not my opinion, its the way I was trained, the way I saw tires that were installed on too wide of wheels etc.

They sell what they can make the money on
I've seen what they install, a tread width of 7 inches on a 10 inch wide wheel , they are in it for the money and the worse a tire wears , guess what the more money they make

So the fact Cooper's website shows 8" max means that they are in cahoots with DT to sell you something incorrect.

Just do what you want, much like trying to help those who think a Daystar is the best lift out there.
You have to learn on your own

Glad to hear someone else doing their maintenance. I fear a lot of people overlooking these easy jobs.
The tcase fluid was fun, right? I had used this long plastic tube extension that made it much easier.

I have 2 pumps that I use. One for diff fluids, one for tcase fluids. They screw onto the bottle of oil/fluid and the pick up tube is as long as the bottle is tall. There is a longer tube on the discharge end that helps getting in tight spots.

I hear ya with regards to maintenance. Saves money big time. Both in the maintenance itself and the longevity of the vehicle.

I bet you save at least 200 by doing those fluids by yourself.
I have no doubt that anyone on this forum can perform these easy tasks with very little know how. There's enough info here to get it done.
Did you go synthetic or regular oil in the rear?

Synthetic.

And as far as savings................I do get the oil/filter changed at the dealer because they send out coupons for multiple change packages and I get it done for around 15 bucks. Last time in they wanted me to schedule a 30K mile service which included all the stuff I did. I do nearly all of the maintenance and modding on our Jeeps so I was like, "No thanks." For poop&laughs I asked what they charge for the maintenance. Just for a plug change, for example, dealer was gonna charge $235!

I did all this for well under 100 bucks.

Well I drain and refill the diffs every 12-15K depending on which Jeep and what it's done over the past year. All of 'em spin like a top.

If I feel like following the very short life of the rear diff oil, I have to change it soon. Glad to hear they're all running well.
