Default Maintenance time...

Hey,

Runnin a 2002 Ranger with 81,000 mi on her and I want to do some maintenance on her. At that mileage, what do you all think I should get done?

Already completed:
oil (of course)
Spark Plugs
Spark Plug wires
Air Filter
Tires

I am most likely going to do radiator flush out, brake fluid flush out, and new belt on her real soon. Is there any important parts at that mileage I should swap out?

Oh, and brakes are going to be done this month as well.

Thanks!

Cool truck man!

I'd consider a fuel filter change and a rear end service too, if it were me. Sometimes the rear diff oil will alert you to problems early on..

haha yeah, it's been a while since I have been on this forum. Couple things, 1, thanks for the compliment on the truck, 2, right after I posted that, ironically the first thing I changed was the fuel filter. I just bought a 1991 Toyota MR2 non turbo. shes my project car. So if anyone has any suggestions, I am thinking about doing an engine swap with a JDM 3SGTE MR2 Turbo.
