Default prevenative maintenance

hello,

im new to the forum..i just wanted to ask what type of preventative maintenance i should take to get the most miles out of my ranger..i bought it from a dealer with 140k on it the engine is clean and the auto trans seems pretty strong yet...4.0 4x4 auto..it is getting up there in mileage but i would like to have it go as long as possible as its my only vehical...it came from a dealership so they did a ?? inspection how many ever "point"....it is running great and i love it so far..except the mileage but it is a truck and i knew it going into buying it..

is there anything to check or add to the truck...it dosent leak any oil unlike mky old 94...how many miles can i expect if im nice to it..

thanks,
kyle

service the transmission fluid and filter, service the front and rear differentials... these things are commonly overlook/set aside...

Differentials, Transfer case, Fuel Filter, maybe tranny flush/coolant flush + replacement, check ur spark plugs and your boots, change the oil, also if theres any lube points, idk what year yours is. make sure all the fluids are filled. check for leaks before any of the following.
