That being said, I still pity the person that gets my Jeep and I hope they don't sign up on a forum I frequent.
Your joking right? That is a HUGE waste of money even if you abuse it hardcore. 4k on the oil, and at minimum 30k on the others. Today's oil isn't like it was 10 years ago. Thanks to technology, refinement of oils, creation of synthetics, and standards.
Save yourself some cash...if you have cash to burn through i need the above maintenance done to mine
Now for the topic at hand. Two things flag for me. You say the pads are thin - replace them regardless...Only like 50$ and 30min of your time. Caliper could be sticking too. Changes of weather could make it stick then become unstuck.
