First fluid change mileage?
Although my JK manual calls for the first oil change at 3000 miles and no differential or gearbox oil change for multiple thousands of miles, this seems to be much too long of a time period for a brand new vehicle. My last new car called for the first crankcase and gearbox oil change at 500 miles, then every five thousand and 30,000 after that, respectively, though I change all fluids more frequently. Should I just follow the manual, or my gut? I don't suppose the warranty would be jeopardized if I changed the fulids more frequently than the manual requires, but I don't want to be wasting my $$ either. Most importantly, I want to ensure a long, trouble-free life for my Jeep.
Also, the 300 mile break in period seems too short, but that's a thread for a different day....
