Default Question about Jeep Axel Differential Fluid Changes

Hello all, a little over a month ago now I finally bought my first Jeep Wrangler. I am loving it, and I plan to take care of it as best as possible. This is my first 4x4 and i'm not very mechanically inclined just yet. So my question is, is changeing the axel fluids important and how should I know when I need to? Is it easy to do? I have dana 44 axel.

Thanks much!

Check it. See what it looks like. If mine is dirty i change it. If not the i dont. But i dont drive mine on the road much. If you are gonna DD it then maybe change them and keep a eye on them if you dip it in the mud often.

First thing I would do is verify and check it that it has got the correct amount. I usually change all the fluids in a vehicle that I purchase just so I have the piece of mind of knowing whats in everything.
