First off I want to thank everyone for all the info on this thread. I have been a member on here since I got my PSD, around 4 years, and there is some great info on here.
I have an early 99 that just hit 203,000 miles. Over the years I have fixed/replaced/added :
-Leveling Kit and Adjustable Track Bar.
-4" FBD Turbo Back Exhaust
-Hypertech Programmer (which I keep on Tow Safe)
-New Starter Solenoid
I am hoping to get a discussion going about preventative Maintenance for our high mileage rigs. While I don't tow with mine a lot, I take it on weekend trips a lot. I am headed to Utah on a mountain biking road trip in May and for some reason am worried about my truck this time around.
What are good preventative maintenance type of things to do. Ya know, before they go??
I service my Tranny every 30K and have had no issues so far. I flush the coolant while I do the tranny. Other then that I just do the regular oil changes. I use the Delo 10/40w with lucas oil stabilizer and use the lucas fuel injector cleaner as well about every 2000k. Note, my brake pads are fine.
Am I paranoid or should I start replacing things? Below is a list of items that I was thinking might be a good idea.
-New Hubs/Bearing Assembly
-New 4x4 Locking Hubs
-Another Tranny Service
-New Rear Axle wheel Bearings (No idea about how to do this)
Please let me know what you think, let me know if I should add anything, or if I am just worried because Im getting ready to embark on a 2000 mile road trip that will see some dirt time.
Thanks for your comments, and below are a few shots of the rig.
