I have a 95 Troopie, what is the opinion out there on how often I should change the gearbox oil. I only average about 5000K a year. So I am wondering if my oil changes should be time or kilometer based.

I would go 40,000 klms or 2 years whichever comes first assuming you are not going through deep water

I think the servce intervals for the later 70 series such as yours is actually more than this (i will check tomorrow)

I do it with the forty thou recommended service except I do that at 50000. the difs and gearbox/transfer dont take a lot of oil so it not expensive and small price to pay for peace of mind. If you have LSD dif it definitely needs changes. I use the recommended oil and I dont believe additives help the formula.

Change the brake and clutch fluid too. Brake fkuid absorbs water from the atmosphere and will cost you plenty as I have learned to my own loss.

I guess the best suggestion is to do more travelling in it

I do 12 -15k a year and do those oils every 2 years.

they can collect water and shavings off of cogs so it probabally is worth doing them evry 2 years or so in your case
