tune-up

Im going to get a tune-up this weekend, and my cousin works at the dealership so im gettin a pretty good deal, so im thinking about getting some extra stuff done.
Im replacing the plugs, but im bringing my own (bosch 4 pring plats)
fuel injectors cleaned out
throttle body cleaned out
replacing my front sway bar bushings cause it squeeks when my left front wheel goes over a bump

and i guess the rest is just normal stuff, anything else i should recomend to get done?

thanks

My 5.2 hated the +4 Bosch plugs. Lost gas mileage and the idle was erratic.

Ditto. A waste of money. If yours has a cap & rotor, then do not forget them.

Doing any fluid changes? Diffs, trans, txfr case? You didn't say how many miles are on your Jeep, but those things are good to keep in mind.
