I'm at 64k. Does it mean the fluids need to be changed?

I wasnt aware that the CBS had ANY service indicator at ANY mileage


OP did you put all 64k on yourself? Any chance the mileage isnt accurate?

Just a guess: it's calling for oil change in the transfer case, which does have a countdown timer... But given the stated mileage, either someone messed with the case, or the odometer.

No, it was a recent purchase. I cant say if the mileage was tampered with. Nothing seemed out of order on the carfax.

btw, did my picture get deleted? Am i not able to post pictures? Im new here.

Picture fine. you on a phone?

Do you know what a tamper dot is? Anyone read your DME during the pre purchase inspection?
