New commander Owner Here

I just bought a 2006 Commander Limited 4.7 with 60K miles on the clock from my friends retired dad in Florida. I am planning on doing to following maintenance on it when it arrives:

Change Air Filter
Change Oil and Filter
Change Spark Plugs and replace with Champion Platinum
Change Diff Fluids with Mopar Fluid
Change Transfer Case Fluid with Mopar Fluid
Change Tranny Fluid with Mopar ATF4 and change filters
Change Coolant with Mopar HOAT
Inspect hoses and belts
Check Battery
Replace broken door handles
Clean sunroof drains


Am I forgetting anything?

Thank you,

Jack

Sounds like a plan. The Hemi does not like other than the stock Champion copper plugs but not sure about the 4.7. I'd just go with stock plugs, they last over 50k miles anyway. My 06 with 90K has had the water pump and thermostat replaced but not the hoses. Think age is more important than miles on them. I see you have selected the right fluids so that's good. Welcome to the forum. We like pictures!!

I would suggest sticking with owners manual recommended plugs. I assume since you are sticking with factory fluids the plugs you mentioned are the recommended ones. Welcome to the WK community.

As far as fixing the door handles, there's a great kit on eBay that includes everything you need to fix all 4. Even if only one or two is bad it's better to replace all 4 because they will break. The kit even includes a drill bit to drill out the glued plastic and screws to secure the new handles. Why jeep didn't mount them this way is one of life's great mysteries...
