This is probably the best place to answer your questions http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_maintenance.htm and you can directly download the maintenance schedule here http://www.wkjeeps.com/misc/maintenance_schedule_wk.pdf

I would do all the fluids, oil, diffs, tranny, transfer case, coolant, plugs, belt. Check the brakes/tires.

All of this is pretty easy to DIY.

I'm getting ready to do my 60k tune up.. actually just picked up the last bit of materials to get everything done.

Here's my list;

PCV valve
Transmission fluid and both filters
Front and rear axle fluid
Spark plugs

Other things I'm going to do;

Front and rear brake pads
180 degree thermostat


Inspected the drive belt, looks fine.
Might do a coolant flush, we'll see
No t-case or diff (I'm 4x2)


I'm going to do everything myself - tomorrow if I'm not too hungover, but if not tomorrow, then next weekend.

How did it go Matt?

I have another question - I am at 8500 miles and have owned her since 12/08...should I do my second oil change now? Reason I am asking is the dealer said I do not need to do it early and to wait every 6K miles. I live in Cali so the weather is not a problem, and majority of my miles are freeway.

I would, yes. I'm using synthetic and I change every 5,000.

HAHA Hangovers = FTMFL

So do you abide by the 6 month rule too? (ie every 6 months OR 5-6K miles change oil)

No, I don't take length of time into consideration (for better or for worse) - but it usually falls into the regular duration anyways. I have my EVIC set to 5,000, so whenever that gets close or is up, I change it.

you can set the intervals in which it will notify you? ALSO, can someone tell me again how to reset the EVIC so it doesnt tell me to change my oil every time I get in the car? Something with a key cycle and 3X on the gas pedal...chit I can't remember
