JT42 Awesome suggestions guys and gives me a good starting point. I will probably leave the diff fluid since priority #1 is going to 4.56 gears which will happen soon. I did change air filter and clean battery terminals but spark plugs, fluids, and filters are great idea.

SeVeReDiStOrTiOn Do everything you can think of. Not only because of the miles but being you just bought it having a maintenance starting point helps out down the road. You'll know exactly what was done and when.

If you purchased from a dealer they probably did an oil change but check to make sure. Other than that check and/or replace plugs, air filter, flush coolant, change gear oil in front/rear diffs, tranny filter if an auto, drain and refill transfer case, lube front-end zerks, check brake pads and rotors. I'd also check the install date of the battery and clean the terminals then spray anti-corrosion gunk on there...but that's me. The last thing you want is having a six year old battery in there and not know it.

*EDIT* What he said^

Nissantech Spark plugs, diff fluids(front and rear), transfercase fluid, trans fluid, coolant, air filter, 60k isn't alot of miles but a major service is due every 30k so just give It a good once over. Congrats on your new jeep!!!! Hope this helps!

Maintenance?

I just purchased a 2003 Wrangler TJ Sport that has 60k miles. I do most my own work and I know each vehicle type has its own individual issues. I like to try to fix things before they cause major problems so based on you guys experience with your TJ's I am wondering what maintenance I should do to this guy.

Based on it having 60k miles what things would you guys suggest I do or check? I appreciate any help and advice you can provide!
