Major Fluids Changed: Feels Nice!!!

So after rolling 25,000 miles on the odometer it was time to get the major fluids changed on my rig. Here is what I had done:
-Front and rear differential
-Transfer case
-Transmission
-Oil Change
Initial impression is that everything just feels tighter. Shifts are smoother and almost feel quicker. I know this just might be born out of the fact that I dropped a bunch of money on the Jeep, but hopefully the changes are actually quantifiable.

I need to get the same work done too, less the transmission....

ALL: is the front & rear axle fluid, and t-case fluid change a DIY job or is it too much of a PITA? I don't have access to a lift...is a lift necessary?

wkjeeps has pretty good description of how to do it.... Are people doing these jobs themselves or having a shop do them???

And for any one going to do these fluid changes, go to the website that sounds like "spamazon" and you will not believe how much money you can save if you buy the fluids yourself.

Funny, I started the same thread about a week ago. Had all the above done just before the storm hit. Jeep feels much tighter and shifts great. I'm at 60K. How much did they charge, or did you do it yourself? Dealer charged me $730 for all the above.

Just search for 75w/140 gear oil and ATF +4. The best deal is if you buy the 12 quart bundle.

When I bought all the fluid for the my diffs front and back, transfer case, oil change and transmission fluid? it cost me a little over $300. 2 quarts of nv146 was $72, oil was around $45 with the discount, diff fluid was around $90 and the rest was for transmission fluid and filter. although they gave me 7quarts of ATF+4 and only needed 3 and a half.
