what can I expect for problems?

I just bought a 99 PSD with 135K on it, what can I expect to have to replace as the truck gets more miles on it? what do you recommend for oil change intervals? I drive a lot of gravel roads. Thanks

i chane my engine oil every 5k miles. tranny/coolant: 10k - 15k.
if you do a lot of 4x4 stuff: xfer case/front end: 10k.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

You change your coolant that often? Maybe i should go change mine, it has 65k miles on it!
I was gonna change it at 75k ...or maybe a little later, it still looks real clean.
