Changing axle fluids

Is it a difficult job and are any special tools require. What needs to be done to be able to change the fluids as I think my axles may need a fluid change? It is a 2005 GC 3.0L. Thanks.

Front diff has a drain and fill plug. Rear only has a fill plug. You can vacuum the fluidout of the rear axle or pull the cover and do it properly. Search this forum for writeups. Pretty basic stuff.

You'll need a 14mm (I believe) hex head socket for the front diff.
