The fuel injection service will help to maintain your fuel economy, however it will not kill your vehicle to put it off. the rear Diff service is pretty essential. your differential has tightly meshed gears that require proper lubrication to maintain viable operation. not performing this service will leave fluid in the diff that no longer properly lubricates the gears, thus leading to premature wear. the power steering fluid is a hydraulic fluid. if it gets contaminated, it will cause the power steering pump to wear prematurely. it is not a good idea to forgo this service either.

Most of that is not scheduled maintenance items. I would have your fuel filter replaced, if not done yet, it should be done every 20,000 miles. Alot of these places get a small commission for selling added services. I would go by the maintenance schedule in your owners manual.

Fuel filter is a 100k plus interval item.
Fuel filter is built into the fuel pump in the gas tank.
Here is a video describing the process to remove and change the pump assembly.

Maintenance Minder 6 Scheduled Maintenance
Recommended service for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline:

Replace VTM-4 rear differential fluid: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher level of mechanical (shear) stress to fluid or frequently fully loaded. This requires differential fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the differential fluid changed at 7,500 miles (12,000 km), then every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).

I recently changed the oil in my 2005 Jeep Grand Cheroke. I want to re-set the computer to remind me of the next oil change in 3000 miles. How do I do that?

Depending on your model your owners manual should have instructions that guide you through the process. To reset the oil monitor in my jeep the dash has a menu button you scroll through until you get to the oil life then you press step until you scroll through the options you need like 3000, 4000, 5000 miles. it will ask if you want it reset and you press yes. Its very simple.

The rubbing sound you hear may or may not be related to the differential condition. If the diff lube has not been changed in the last 12,000 miles, it's due for a change: it is recommended as normal service.(front and rear) If the diff is leaking or very low, or, if there is a noise, just replacing the lube won't help. You need to correct the problem.
The average JL tech is well trained in removing and replacing oil drain plugs and filters. Leave the real diagnosis to a trained experts. You may have a piece of plastic column cover rubbing (easy to fix) or something more serious such as a hub bearing or differential internal bearing failing.

I have only 30,000 miles on my 2006 Jeep Commander.

The differential and trans service is a must, but the induction and spark plugs can wait till the 60k. There are 2 different types of service schedules. Regular and severe. The dealer will always recommend severe driving service.

I want to get service for a AWD 2005 GRD CHK LTD What are the basics that I should have done for 45000. I have had no dealer work after 25000. Dealer went out of buisness. I was always taking their advice...

You can go any place like jiffy lube for your Oil and filter change every 4,000 miles or 6 month's which ever comes first. The air filter should be replaced every 25,000 miles and PVC valve or once a year. The transmission, transfer case, front and rear differential should be serviced 80,000 to 100,000 miles or 5 years which ever comes first. The radiator antifreeze if orange service 150,000 miles or 5 years, if antifreeze is green every 30,000 miles or once a year. The spark plugs , wire set good for 100,000 miles. Oh and fuel filter is in the gas tank and a part of the fuel pump so don't let someone tell you that the fuel filter needs to be changed. Change it when the fuel pump fails and that's around 150,000 miles. And last the wipers blade, always replace them in the spring. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
