Yup. Doesn't seem right or fair.

OP, has your JK been maintained/serviced by the dealer?

No, I do most all the work myself unless I need a oil change or something similar when we are traveling or down south for the winter. I have only had it into the dealer for a couple recalls. The day I bought it, Chrysler declared bankruptcy and the the dealer was no longer a Chrysler dealer. So I had to find a different servicing dealer much further away. Got a good deal though.

IMHO you shouldn't have been charged for that. I'd contact the Chrysler Customer Center and log a concern. Doesn't sound like they knew what they were doing. Ugly looking rear differential lube is fairly common, it's the lube doing its job. Jeep doesn't call for regular differential fluid changes on the JK. I can't recall the exact mileage when it's called for, but in routine use it's fairly high mileage. If you had no differential noises or other issues there was no reaon to tear it down. A simple fluid change, which on a JK is as simple as it gets, would have sufficed. Again, just my humble opinion.
