When you get it back change the oil early--at less than 1K miles. Change it again at 5K miles and then again at 20K. That should remove all of the clutch disk material that is typically the cause of contaminated oil which leads to early bearing failure.

Have my jeep in the shop now! Was making a clicking noise in the rear end, The found that the bearings were shot! Not sure what caused the issue. I had the dealer put a Mopar 2" lift and new 35" wheels and tires on it has 52,000 miles on it. Has I believe an 8 speed transmission and a 3.45 gear ratio. Anyone had similar issues?
Same issue. Same mileage! Except I had them out in 37s. Warranty fix right now.

Edit* No LSD
