Anything special?

I have an '08 rancher 4x4 e.s. I have always kept the oil changed and the air filter clean, but that's about all the maintenance I've done. Even still, it has served me well.

I'll be flushing the coolant soon, and I plan to replace the fuel filter with the updated unit. I guess it's a good time to replace diff fluid front and rear also.

What else, if anything, should I be looking to do at this point? Lube, grease, check, adjust, etc. Also, is there a good maintenance or shop manual available to us mere owners?

How many miles/hours are on it?

It's 9 years old, probably time for a valve adjustment, change out the spark plug, check the brake pads/shoes, definately change the diff fluids. There is no grease zerks or anything on these, but it's a good idea to check your CV boots for holes or cracks starting to form. Then there is the typical suspension bushings, ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings etc. that would be a good thing to check. Depending on milage of course, if the thing has 500 miles on it I probably wouldn't bother....

There is a factory service manual available for download on this forum somewhere.
