How does my 104K mile service check up look? Please check

Have 104K on my '02 WJ V8 4WD. Want to keep it going for another 100K if possible. Time to change out all the fluids. Here is what I have on my list...

Engine oil + filter
F+R axle
Transfer case
Transmission Oil (Should I do both filters?)
Coolant flush
Plugs
Check belts

Now, what do you recommend for specific fluids? I'm in CA and the Jeep does not see harsh conditions, but does see towing a few times per year. Right now I'm running 10w30 M1 and thinking about going to 5w30.

Thanks.

stay with the heavier weight oil, go synthetic gear fluid and tc fluid, change the filters in the transmission.

I don't know ifyou have a cap and rotor, but i would suggest that as well.

If you have the NV247 (Quadra Trac II or Quadra Drive) Transfer Case, make sure you use the correct fluid.

I do have the Quadra Drive. Which fluid is recommended? The local dealer said the Mopar Transfer Case Lubricant - 3.4 pts. P/N 05016796AB is backordered.

For the 247 the amsoil works fine, thats what i just put in, might want to flush the power steering fluid and maybe new brake fluid cause i know mine was pretty nasty.

That is what you need, and there is NO substitute.

I dont feel like searching right now, but there was just a pretty detailed thread that confirmed that amsoil had a fluid for the 247.
