Regular maintenance?

Quick question: I've had my 2008 Liberty for two years now and aside from regular oil changes, I've done nothing in way of service items. I only just passed 10,000 miles a week ago so I figured I was safe, but I wanted to check. Is there any kind of basic maintenance that I should have done already, like change the air filter, rotate tires, etc.? Even though it's been two years, I drive so few miles (only 5K/year) that I wasn't sure. I've never brought my KK in for service so no maintenance at all has been done to it since I bought it brand new (except oil changes). I know I'm due for some new wiper blades, but that's about all I'm sure of.

Thanks in advance!

Go to page 452 in your owner's manual. In this section it tells you what to do every month, as well as every oil change and also has a maintenance schedule on page 455 that goes by both months and miles (which ever comes first). From the looks of it, there are a few items you need to do since it has been so long. If you don't have the hard copy of the owner's manual you can download it on pdf format from the jeep website.

One thing that my manual calls for on my 2010 is to rotate tires each oil change (6,000mi or 6mo). I think this is a money maker plan for the dealer if you go to dealership for each oil change. I have 13,000mi being towed and 5,000mi driving = 18,000mi on tires since new 5mo ago, and can neither see nor feel any reason to rotate the tires when I have oil & filter changed next month. I do want all fluid levels checked each 6,000mi/6m, not only at 12,000mi/12mo, as called for in service manual.

My odometer only shows the 5,000mi actually driven. I am keeping a total mileage record for tire wear and driveline purposes.
