New Owners Check List

Been thinking and reading about a variety of things people do with their newly acquired Jeeps. I've been making a check list of what I want to do to mine (06 Auto) to ensure its at its best. If anyone can add to the list or how to do it I would greatly appreciate it!

Spark Plugs (Autolite Double Platinum plugs APP985)
Oil & Filter (Going Synthetic)
Transmission Fluid
Transfer Case Fluid
Both Differentials

Just off the top of my pointy head,

1) Change ALL fluids;
2) New hoses and belts;
3) New coil;
4) Check thoroughly for engine leaks and body/frame rust, including inside the frame with an inspection camera if possible;
5) Check brakes and bearings;
6) Lube thoroughly;
7) Check under the seats, the wire grid under the seat itself may be rusty;

I'm fried, going to bed.
