Jeep Cleaning This Weekend (need some help)

I got my jeep last week with a 133,000 miles and its in very good condition. But i want to make sure it will last a long time so this weekend i am going to do alot of things. Here is what i have so far. Please add to my list if i forget something.

Grease all fittings
Change tranny fluid and filter
Change transfercase Fluid
Change diff fluid
Change Plugs
Flush Radiator
Change Engine Oil


What am i forgetting?
Will i need any special tools for anything here?
Can i get all of this at advance auto parts?
How much will this cost? (estimate)




Thanks,
Zach

Yeah, you should be able to get all of that at the local auto parts store. Since you have a '99 you should have wires, rotor and cap like mentioned before. If you really want to make sure everything is "tip-top" then I'd change them also if you're already going to change the plugs.

You asked about cost...Should be just a couple hundred bucks or so for the whole thing and a couple of hours of your time.

You asked about special tools. I don't know what kind of tools you have at your disposal. Make sure you gap your plugs correctly before you put them in or it won't be doing you any good. Please give us some kind of idea of tools you have so I/we don't run through the whole list of tools needed (ie spark plug socket, oil filter wrench etc)

Drink upstream from the herd.
