Suggested Preemptive Maintenance 100K

Hey y'all,

I'm about 2300 miles from hitting the ole 100,000 on the odometer. What's some suggestions for preemptive maintenance?

I take pretty good care of the jeep: frequent oil changes; diffs at 30K, 60K, 90K; spark every 30K; etc.

I know the big thing at 100K is the get the radiator flushed, what else are some good ideas?
-Replace tire rod ends?
-Replace front sway bar bushings and links?
-Flush/Fill all fluids (i.e. brake fluid, power steering)?

Honestly, looks like you have all the bases covered. Only because it wasn't mentioned I'd add the t-case to that list but I imagine you service that as well. Throttle body cleaning. Maybe consider swapping in a new tstat and water pump when you drain the coolant for a flush/refill. Keep up the good work!

I like to do auto transmissions every 50.

Brake fluid should be done every two years.

The power steering fluid so nasty on our hemi at 40k that I plan to do it every 30 or less.

Hard parts get replaced as they fail for me, I keep a close eye on them instead of keeping a mileage schedule.

I'm definitely over due for the brake fluid and steer fluid.

That's my plan too with the hard parts - I do toy in my head with just going ahead and replacing the water pump and alternator. But it would probably be better to just preemptively put new hoses in everything instead.
