Any tips for overall longevity?

Hey everyone,
Well I have a 96 Grand Cherokee 4.0 with 200,000 miles on it and I hope to keep it for awhile. It still runs strong and I keep good oil in it and use Mobil 1 filters. I am just looking for any tips on preventative maintenance I can do to keep it in tip-top shape as I don't have 30K to plunk down on a new one. Thanks,

Let's see, you have 200 k mi and you're asking us for maint tips? Hmmm... how about replacing brake fluid (and clutch fluid, if manual)? Change diff & TC fluid...
