Thanks for the information so far. Will change fluids before winter.
Yes, the 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon "has" rear brake rotors. Interesting buggers are they have regular outside brake pads and, onthe same assembly, inside drum style pads used for the emergency brake.

|kenpoengineer||Thanks. I've replaced hoses for winter. Everything else is original. What about clutch, differentials, bearings, man trans fluid, etc. I've never had this thing in to a dealer for maintenance .... maybe I should have it checked out?|

|JeepnJim||Replace your hoses. The only two times a 4.0 has left me sitting roadside was because of a busted hose, once a heater hose and once an upper radiator hose. In the dead of winter. At night. Both times. Hoses are cheap and easy to replace.|

2003 TJ w/151k What's Going to Break Soon?
I have a 2003 TJ 6 cylinder 4.0 engine Wrangler with 151k miles on it. The only thing I've replaced are brake pads, rear rotors, engine belt, battery and water pump/thermostat. It's almost winter time and I'd like to prepare for whatever. What is about to break and need replacement or repair? Thanks in advance.
