Default Dif oil change believe or not?

Went today to Chrysler in Bellevue for oil change, got 16,784 on the clock. So he tells me before the all the checks that the dif oil should be changed and the direction from Dodge is the dif oil should be changed at 15,000. I am in shock as the manual says 100, 000, unless you to towing and any of the other things that will put stress on the truck. So I say check the condition of the oil so the mechanic comes out and shows me the condition of the oil it's pretty clear, [By the way they wanted 120 bucks for the dif change] but claims that they change many vehicles at 15,000 and the oil is black.

So there are two questions as many of you here leave the change till at least 30,000, Have any of you come across this at any Dodge dealers, and do you think that $120 is excessive?

ok, you have the 4X4
i have the 2X4, they wanted me to change fluids on both the transmission & rear end at 20,000 miles, both are synthetic fluids, i changed at 40,000, maybe i should have changed just before 36,000 warranty period was up, but i was going to use a better product i believe called called Royal Purple.
I suggest that you change both fluids before 36,000 miles because of the new vehicle warranty
Also buy the MAXIMUM CARE EXTENDED WARRANTY before you hit 36,000 miles
It covers your repairs & labor for LIFETIME, on everything that is NOT considered a wear part, like brake parts, fan belts, hoses, & tires
