Ford dealer trans fluid service?

Hi, I just bought a 06' Explorer with the 4.0 V6 and 5 speed auto trans at 57.000 miles. I got a Ford dealer price quote of $160.00 to exchange the fluids for the transmission and transfer case. Now, I also bought a Ford extended warranty and was wondering is it just better to pay a little more to have this serviced at my Ford garage and not have to worry about it for another 60.000 miles? thoughts welcomed!

After reading the 4G sub-forum for a while, that seems to be the consensus, to have it dealer serviced.

Thanks! I saw there are many posts about this, I'm going with the flush and fill. I have the warranty just in case.
