90,000 Miles Maintenance

Hi all,

I have search and looked through the maintenance schedule, but I would like your input to see if I am missing any major maintenance items.

I have:

Serviced both diffs this past winter (probably do them again in the winter) (<15,000 miles ago)
Serviced transmission this summer
Serviced transfercase last summer (<15,000 miles ago)
Replaced coolant this summer
Change oil/filter, lubed up the front end, and rotate tires every 3-5k miles
Replaced brake fluid last summer (<15,000 miles ago)
Will be replacing air filter before winter
Changed power steering fluid this summer
My spark plugs (Autolite platinum plugs) probably need to be looked at, I changed them about 30,000 miles ago
I checked my brake pads and rotors and they are still good
I know I need to change my serp belt soon, but I am monitoring that

I think that includes all the major maintenance I have done recently. Any help on what I am overlooking?

Thank you for the quick reply. I have reviewed the FSM, but I was wondering if there is anything which people change more frequently than the FSM which I may have missed. For example, I do not believe the FSM ever calls for changing manual transmission fluid, yet many people do this every 30,000 miles.

probably be a good idea to change the 4 coolant hoses as preventative maintenance

Inspect all the steering linkages and ball joints also, maybe an alignment. I think all the other comments have you covered fairly well.

Most of the time we overlook all of the things. Great job researching and asking questions!
