4x4 maintenance checklist

With the snow and ice coming, is there a checklist I could go through to keep my 4x4 system ready to go?

Thanks!

You might wanna grease your needle bearings on the interior of the front hub bearing assemblies before it's too late..... like me

During Issac nasty water got into my right front hub, destroyed my needle bearings, which took out my outter shaft too..... 250 for shaft, 30 bucks for new ujoint, 350 for R&L side seals and ball joints while doing the fix,500 for a new hub assembly from momma Ford, plus rental car costs while truck is down........ gets spendy.. Lesson learned,,,, check them needle bearings once every 60k miles or after every water submersion.......... $$$$

check that manual shift lever, when its cold out and you yank on that lever it snaps the aluminum casting to the transmission. If you see any hairline cracks or stress crack replace it so it dont leave you stranded, and tear apart your 4x4 hubs and check those splines. If they need to be replced replace them. Saves alot of headache of being stranded
