    Legal Florida Tint all-around, 1.5" add-a-leaf, bilstein 5100 rear shocks, Light Racing Coilovers, Removed secondary air filter, K&N airfilter, Amsoil 100% synthetic motor oil, Amsoil synthetic severe gear in rear differential, Differential breather mod, Painted rims and logo's black, amsoil oil filter
    I'm actually at about 11,620 miles and since i bought her at 3000 she hasnt been to the dealer for anything.

    Well the light came on at around 10500 but with school and everything i havent been able to go over the regular maintenance. I changed the oil to Amsoil synthetic at around 6000 so that should be fine. I changed the rear differential to Amsoil synthetic and i dropped in a k&n, this was also done around 6000 miles.

    I'd rather not take her to the stealership if i can help it being a broke college student and all haha I off-road her occasionally which is always followed up by a thorough cleaning to get rid of the mud but besides that i've been mostly driving in tampa traffic or highway miles across state.

    What all should i do for this regular maintenance interval? oh and links to instructions would be great :D

    EDIT: Just for convenience, it's a 6-speed V6 4x4

    Pretty much stock
    Replace engine oil and filter 1
    Rotate tires
    Visually inspect brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs
    Note: Driving in heavy traffic, on dirt roads or in urban, dusty or desert areas may shorten the life of the cabin air filter. Replacement may be needed if you notice reduced air flow from the air conditioner and heater or if the windows fog easily when you use the "Fresh" mode. Consult your dealer if any of these conditions occur.


    Additional Maintenance Items for Special Operating Conditions:

    Driving While Towing
    Lubricate propeller shaft (4WD) 4
    Re-torque propeller shaft bolt 4
    Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis
    Driving on Dirt Roads or Dusty Roads
    Inspect ball joints and dust covers
    Inspect drive shaft boots (4WD)
    Inspect engine air filter
    Inspect steering linkage and boots
    Lubricate propeller shaft (4WD) 4
    Re-torque propeller shaft bolt 4
    Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis

    Applicable Footnotes:
    1) Reset the oil replacement reminder light ("MAINT REQD") or the message "OIL MAINTENANCE REQUIRED" on the multi-information display after engine oil replacement.
    4) Includes operating on roads which road salt has been applied

    You need to change your oil & filter again - unless you are one of those people who want to keep your synthetic oils in for longer periods of time.
    The maintenance light will start flashing at 4500 miles and will stay on constant at 5,000 miles until you reset it. Search this forum or look in your owners manual on how to reset it.

    When was the last time you rotated your tires?

    Check your air filter.... check air pressure in tires.... check fluids....

    thanks for the advice, yeah i checked my oil and its not really time yet to change it again.

    gotta rotate the tires but what i was more thinking of is stuff like this:
    Lubricate propeller shaft (4WD) 4
    Re-torque propeller shaft bolt 4

    is it really necessary yet?

    and yeah i know how to do the light, i did my 5,000 mile maintenance
