Amp reading when all off

I have a 06 XK limited and an 05 Grand Cherokee Limited. My GC battery went dead and I found that the liftgate wasn't completely closed and light stayed on. 2 days later the battery was dead again (lights off this time after jump starting) - the battery store (Batteries +) had tested the 4 year old (85 month) Interstate battery and all tested good. Must have a drain somewhere. Checking the + wire on the battery I was seeing 2.5 amp usage with all off - a little high. Played with ALL electrical devices and think the liftgate might have been it again although I had closed it good after the first time, now the amps read .20amps. Alternator checks good 13.5 volts. I put the meter on the Commander and it also reads .20amps with all off.
Does .2 amps sound like a normal reading with all off?

Had to replace the brakes - they opened more gas stations in town
