Hello,

@UR2EZ

Here is the service the tech recommended, which of these do you feel are necessary and which are basic mechanic DIY (without a lift, but he has tools), we can ask a friend to help my dad.

1) Air Filter missing 3 clips

2) Belt has cracks

3) Fuel filters recommended every 10k miles

4) Rear End Axle Seals Leaking - Reseal Rear Hubs/Axles

5) Rear Differential Service

6) Transmission service recommended - Tech feels it has never been touched

7) Transfer case service - if not done recently

The vehicle is at the shop, so we will give a go ahead for all/select recommended items based upon your feedback.

Thank you

All of it can be done fairly easily and without a lift but if you don't have a lot of experience, I would say just have them do the rear seals. You should be able to find plenty of videos on YouTube about changing out the rest yourself and it will save you some money. The other stuff is pretty simple, won't require you to lift the truck or anything, and can be done with simple tools. If you just got the truck, I would definitely change the oil, new air filter, fuel filters, trans service, diff service, and transfer case service just so you know where it all stands. Most of that stuff is only done every 60k miles; minus the oil, air, and fuel filters.

What would the transmission service consist of? We were quoted about $350 for that?

And are the rear differential service and transfer case service fluid drain and refill or more complex?

I need to ask the tech which belt it is...

Thank you

Transmission service is a new filter, gasket, and fluids. You would just need to drain the trans pan, take it off, clean it (look for metal debris), clean the mating surfaces, take out the filter and replace, install gasket, install pan, and refill. Any parts store can help you get the parts you need; just tell them what you're after.
You're very welcome!

Rear diff and transfer case is similar to the transmission - unless it already has a drain plug - except you don't have a filter.

If we opt for the tech to do the differential and transmission service, the next service should be in about 60k miles?

What should be the warranty, if any, on items such as the belt and seals?

Thank you

Yes and the warranty will depend on the shop and/or manufacturer

You can check you manual for all of your service intervals. It'll list everything and if not, Google has it all listed as well
