maintenance list

Can someone make a list of things I need to do for a tuneup, I haven't touched any of the fluids or grease points since I purchased my 92 YJ. The PO never really told me what she had done maintenance wise so I'm assuming very little. This is my first vehicle so I haven't really learned this part of ownership yet. Thanks.

When I buy something used I usually go over everything...here is my short list...

Inspect Cap & Rotor - Replace if needed (check for cracks, burn marks, carbon lines)
Replace Wires
Replace Plugs
Replace Air Filter (unless it appears new, otherwise cheap insurance)
Oil Change (including filter)
Check Brake, Power Steering, and clutch fluid (if applicable)
Check coolant - Drain, Flush, Replace if needed
Inspect Brakes (Pull all tires and inspect condition of rotors, pads, shoes, drums, calipers)
Grease all Fittings (easier while you have the tires off for some of them)
Check Ball Joints and Steering Components
Inspect Shocks and Shock mounts
Inspect Springs and Spring Hangers

But for just a regular "tune-up" - Cap, Rotor, Plugs, Wires - Check Timing (if it's not computer controlled)

Okay, that's exactly what I was looking for, I'm gonna start with replacing all the fluids tomorrow at my schools shop. Thanks.
