Help With Maintenance

Hey guys I just bought my first JEEP!!! A 2005 grand cherokee limited 4.7L.29K miles, Trail Rated, lots of options. I have a few maintenance questions. I am good with cars so I have to ask......

I have the Quadra-Track II system how much of a pain in the *** is it to change both differentials fluid and the x-fer case. should I do the trany now?

which spark plugs do you recommend?

What if any are the problems this vehicle commonly has?

Thanks in advance guys!!!!!!!

Differentials no different than any other vehicle. Limited, you need the LSD additive. For the front diff, you need a 14MM allen. Be sure you can remove the fill before you remove the drain. Transfer case normal as well. Drain and fill bolts. Rear you need to remove the cover. Need soem RTV gasket maker to seal it up. Also, for the front, some get a oil pump, a cheap plastic one, make it a lot easier to fill.

FWIW: The search button is your frioend. Lots of info here.
