That can wait! Just have it checked from time to time. However your mech. has an advantage over us here, he can look at your Jeep.

If he does change the rear diff fluid , make sure he uses the chrysler synthetic gear oil and their friction modifier. Just a rec. , but from the few I've seen with problems , not having the OEM stuff is what made the difference. Same with the trans, if it developes a 'judder' going into 'lock-up', change back to chrysler ATF+4.
