Trans Fluid service interval?

So the manual states that the WJ 545rfe transmission fluid change is recommended at 100,000 miles for normal interval use and 30,000 miles for severe duty use. My mechanic recommended doing it every 60,000 miles

I don't tow but do some wheeling, mostly used as a daily driver. Still I am wondering if it is best to just do it at 30,000 miles. Curious what everyone what else does.

The "severe duty" list never seems that severe to me. Short trips, stop-n-go, dust, etc. is normal driving, as I see it. I always go by that guideline. Plus, 30k miles is what, 2-3 years for most people? Might as well do it, especially if you're able to do it yourself. If you're paying someone to do it, then that might factor into it, as it would co$t you 2-3x as much . . .

My manual says 100 000km for normal driving and I think 60000km for heavy use

an earlier service can't hurt
