change the t-case oil (requires ATF+4)

change oil in the front and rear diffs. Royal Purple Synthetic 74/140 is what a lot of people run in the locker equipped Dana 44s that the Rubi has.

that's about it really...

if you ahve an auto trans, and haven't not already serviced the trans recently, do that as well. My preference is take it to a shop and have them use the correct fluid along with their fluid changer machine... does a more complete fluid change than simply dropping the pan and refilling.

if you have a manual, change the fluid in it.... easy to do, drain through the drain plug, refill with the refill plug.
