30 to 50k is about an average service interval if you aren't having extreme conditions.
You can find a Do It Yourself for both the front and rear diffs here on this site's DIY section. They are for the 2nd gen Outback, but your 3rd gen should not be all that different.
2003 Outback: "Kaylee". 143,000 and counting.
Basics: Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5W30, PureOne oil filter, Fram air filter, Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc ATF, Mobil 1 75W90, Michelin Primacy MXV4.
Mods: Fumoto oil drain valve, Phillips VisionPlus low beams, HIR1 Phillips high beam upgrade, Nokya Hyper Yellow fog lights.
Also: More rust and parking lot scars than I care to think about.
