service tip

Hey all. Now that my 2002 limited is home I want to get all the maintenance up to date (since god only knows when everything was last done) Its got fresh coolant (changed the heater core at purchase) but other than that............

Diffs: 75W140 with friction modifier for the vari loks? (anyone know if there is a seal available for the d44a or if I have to go through the headache of rtv)

T case: (NV247) liquid gold mopar crap from the steelership. drain and fill easy enough

tranny: atf+4, drop the pan change filter use new rubber seal, replace refill don't worry about whats in the torque converter unless the fluid is nasty (looks clean at the dip stick)

Engine oil: change like every other car.... 5w30 for the 4.7 in southern Canada?

brake and steering fluid: educate me?

miss anything?

http://wjjeeps.com/service/transmission.htm Steps #11 of removal, and #1 if installation are very important.

Engine oil: change like every other car.... 5w30 for the 4.7 in southern Canada? YES

brake and steering fluid: educate me? Some say change brake fluid every 100k. change steering fluid if very dark in color

miss anything?

Good stuff. Thanks. Anyone have any experience with cutting their own d44a seal instead of rtv?
