BPE's are great!

On topic...went to the dealer today to get an inspection of my uv dyed oil. They came back with a list for me
Oil pressure sending unit -50$- How many times will this be replaced on my jeep? i did this a while ago...
P/S Pump - 80$- Thats without reservoir. anyone recommend the 15$ rebuild kit from rock auto?
Water Pump - 60$ - But im not loosing hardly any fluid, the res hasnt gone down really at all...
Valve cover gasket - $? - Not looking bad but would recommend it ( how bad of a job is this?)
Rear A-arm bushings/bj - (2) 110$ / 89$ - If i neglect this whats the worst that could happen?
T-Case breather vent - They said it was missing so they plugged it? risky if i drive in water right?

What would be your priority?

What was the conclusion about your oil, most of these things don't apply to oil.

Oil sending unit - My last one (dealer part) lasted for just over a year. I hope this one will go longer.
PS pump - what are your symptoms? Is there a problem, or did they just say replace it?
Waterpump - what are your symptoms? Is there a problem, or did they just say replace it? If you replace it, inspect the cover behind the water pump for corrosion.
Valve cover gaskset - You can do this yourself, and it shouldn't cost too much. It should be done if oil is leaking out of the cover.
Rear a-arm bushings - If you are going to that much work, I would recommend getting a new adjustable a-arm from IRO if you plan on lifting in the future. Might as well upgrade at the time when you need to replace bushings.
t-case breather vent - Easy and Cheap, get a few feet of hose from your local auto parts store, hook it onto the t-case, and place the other end up high in the engine compartment

ps pump im loosing fluid not from the hoses, waterpump there is a minor coolant leak....

The majority of my oil loss is coming from the sending unit, i only drive it sparingly maybe 5 miles a day if i drive and i lost about a quart over only 500 miles!

Rock auto looks like they have the dorman, omix ada, and Moog.
The OEM dealer ones are a bill each. They are better than the others, but way more expensive. Ouch.

I would just replace with moog parts from rockauto or oreillys. I think the dealer parts are too expensive and not worth considering unless its electrical.

Today i recieved my Rugged Ridge floor Mats, they seems great. 

And changed my PCV, should have done it at my last service, but havent got my finger out before now....

Stoped by the dealer and had a look at the 2012 Wrangler, its really cool, but too expensive for me right now. Ha ha 

And a quick wash, completly impossible to hold it clean for more than a day or two these days with the weather we have, but anyway the dirt have to come off in between .
