Trans Fluid Change at 75K

I am contemplating changing my Trans fluid, gasket and filter on my 04 WJ 4.0 auto. It only has 75k when its not recommended until 100k. I dont do much hard driving and only use 4-wheel in the winter. I drive down to South Carolina from Philadelphia once a year (477 miles) and put about 12k on it per year.

Should I do it? Should i look at the trans dipstick and make my choice from the fluid color?

If you are original owner and know it has been used fairly gently and the recommended service is at 100k miles, I would get another year out of it. If its workn good, don't mess with it.
