Default 45RFE Transmission Band Adjustment?

I have been told that the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, automatic transmission model "45RFE" does not need a band adjustment when being serviced.
Does anyone know if this is correct?

[I recently purchased a used 2000 jeep grand cherokee. I have no service history record. Trying to get the maintenance up to date. I need the transmission fluid, filter changed and the bands adjusted. But I don't know if having the bands adjusted will damage the transmission if the bands have already been adjusted recently.]

I would go by the service manual. Both my 4.0s had the 42re and had 2 bands to adjust. It took an in.lb. tq wrench, a 1/4 drive set and a torks bit for one of the bands. You can't hurt it adjusting them if it's already been done recently. Mine required 72 in/lbs and back off one of the band 3 turns and the other band 4 turns. The rear band needed it the worst. Craig
