    So in my trucks 11th year of life, its finally going to hit 100K. Has essentially 95,6xx on it now. Will probably hit the 100K mark in March, maybe April. Anyway, i want to start stock piling what I should have for then.

    things im 100% doing
    replace plugs - Delco iridium seem to be good choice based on the corvette forums
    replace wires - MSD 8.8mm worth it? or just delcos
    Replace serpentine belt - will make me fell better

    Recent things
    new radiator,full coollant system flush
    at ~80K had the trans partly rebuilt, new TC put in, full system fluid flush and change

    What else should i do?
    Shocks probably wouldnt be a bad thing. The brake lines seem to be in good enough condition. My new neighbor said every GM truck he's ever had or been aroudn needs a fuel pump aT 100K, he's a mechanic so i can get delco parts at cost, worth it? What else am I missing or should I do? blackbear it?

    I'd do your fluids too, just because. You have a pretty good handle on stuff, nothing I can think of at the moment to add.

    Ah yes, diffs should get new fluids. Thats about all the rest that will need to get changed. Oh also going to do a fuel filter

    Transfer case, front and rear diffs fluid should be 50k intervals so this should be #2 change, brake fluid replacement for sure, shocks are also a 50k replacement but many dont.
    Stick with delco wires.
    Grease all zerks, lube hinges, inspect u-joints, rotate tires.

    i wouldnt bother doing the fuel pump unless its really noisy

    i got 180k out of my stock fuel pump

    also your fuel filter is built into your pump, you shouldnt have a serviceable one. 2003 was the last year for a frame rail filter.

    don't waste your money on msd wires.

    Flushing your brake fluid wouldn't hurt but might be overkill

    Its not overkill if its never been done. Brake fluid is hygroscopic and needs to be done, especially if the factory fill fluid. Some manufacturers even recommend doing it every 2 years even.

    i have the MSD wires, only because i got them for the same price as the delcos.

    i have heard big gains in brake power by changing the brake fluid, if you got the time and cash do it.

    After I sent the fuel filter suggestion I wondered which year they changed to in tank filter. Mine is a 2000. And I didn't hear about intank filter until recently.

    Thats what I have done twice now and it lessens the hit of what works out out be a few hundred in fluids,filters,parts,materials. Plus I would do a little each weekend, like the rear diff and transfer case one weekend, then the plugs and wires the next, then front diff and oil, then trans and grease fittings. I have a running word doc of maintenance and schedules for all three of my vehicles and I update it every time I do anything. Ive found that to be the easiest way to keep track .

    Yeah I hung up a board in my garage with both vehicles on it, that I can write down what I did and when I did it to keep it all straight. I think right off the bat here im going to do plugs, wires, fuel filter, belt, grease the zerks and see how that goes. Brake fluid as well, i used to switch it out in my S10 ALL the time, since it was my wheelin truck it was always gross.

    Then once its more pleasant to work outside, or use my neighbors shop ( he has a bay with a 2 post lift etc etc ) i'll tackle shit like shocks and my front axle ( need to change fluid and do the pass side axle seal )

    Not sure if you missed it in my post, but you cant do a fuel filter, its non serviceable and built into the fuel pump.

    Whoops, yeah totally missed that message. I got distracted by procharger haha.

    Thats good to hear you got 180K out of the stock, my pump is very quiet, not the normal GM pump that whines super loud to let you know its working.
