What would you do at 65K

I am looking to spend some time under my Wife's Wk. I am driving it a little more recently and noticed the Shocks are about gone in my opinion it never did have a very good ride to start with. I have replaced a few items already. I want to get the beast into pretty good condition for the next year. I am looking at potential issues to cut off before problems arise. All oil change fluids ect have been done.

I have replaced all the gas shocks (hood, glass, hatch) recently
new tires all the way around last fall (09)
I have a K&N air filter in place and cleaned recently
I have on order Koni shocks all the way around (should be here in the next couple weeks)
I have ceramic brake pads ready to change when I do shocks
I am going to have the battery / charging system checked at Sears Auto Center this week.


I am considering the PCV - Have not replaced it yet (is the Mopar one from Napa ok quality?)

I am going to change the Serpentine belt - I can't locate one with a several year warranty I am considering using a Napa? anyone have a suggestion?

I am considering rotors ? I am going to pull a wheel tomorrow and check rotor thickness currently and see if I can find a minimum thickness tolerance. Anyone have an idea here? I am considering slotted replacement if I do it but I am unsure about this.

Any other tips or 65K + suggestions to replace while I am in there?

Thanks in advance
Scott

Plugs, the rotors, and a nice new smelly air freshener.

EGR will go on the list - thank you

I just installed the air cleaner/filter thing, we never knew it was an option. I guess we should have researched the jeep a little more before now.

did the plugs earlier this year

thank again for the input.

Re: What would you do at 65K

I had the local Jeep dealer do the full Trans service back earlier this summer. I usually don't but I had been working out of town and we had a family trip come up and I wanted it done before the trip.

Thanks for the post
