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 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 .
