My miles are beginning to climb so I'm proactively thinking about changing the transmission oil soon as time constraints will not allow it in the very near future. I haven't come across any info on this topic yet. Would be using only true OEM MOPAR transmission oil to minimize any finger pointing in the future. The (my) real question is: has anyone done this already and what is the the drain /refill procedure since this model has no dip stick. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

I've only had my GC for a few weeks, so I haven't done that one yet. But I have done the same change on a BMW X3 and a Land Rover Discovery. Get it warm. First locate the FILL plug on the side of the transmission. Do this first! Stick your finger in the hole to make sure the fluid is up to the edge. Drain the fluid and measure it exactly to put the same amount back in. I modify a pressure sprayer to pump the new fluid in. To really do it right, pull the pan and replace the filter as well. Do this every 50K and you'll get 200K on the transmission easy.
