First service - any recommendations

Post by marmon » Tue Nov 02, 2021 5:49 pm

New the PW ownership; bought a 2017 last year. She's my weekend warrior so I figured after a year I should go tip to tail and swap fluids, grease, etc.

Just looking for any "watch out", "gotcha", or "don't forget's" if the group has any. Not looking for an encyclopedia.

Plan is Trans fluid/filter, both diff's, transfer case, and it's time for normal oil/filter. Also bought a needle grease tip for the stub shaft hidden port. Just going to follow OEM fluids/grease unless there's something I don't know.

Anything else would be appreciated.

I see you already mentioned greasing the stub shaft - that's the most commonly missed item (even by dealerships) :cheers:

Get a large tube of dielectric grease. You have lockers, swaybar disco and winch now. Pop the connections at the axle and smart bar and give them a little grease from time to time. They are a known failure point due to water / dirt / salt infiltration. Winch controller connector too. I have a new connector on order right now due to corrision.
