    Due to deployments and TDYs, my 2008 Silverado has only 41K miles. Aside from oil changes and having the transmission fluid changed when my leaking rear main seal was replaced, I haven't hit any of the mileage thresholds for scheduled maintenance yet. So weighing the age against the mileage, any opinions on what scheduled maintenance should I bump up and accomplish now? Especially concerning fluids, I'm not having any issues but do transfer case/brake/power steering/radiator fluid, etc. have a life span, regardless of mileage? Thanks.

    I would do a coolant flush. That stuff has a life of around 5 years and is known to corrode the crap out of things. I would also change the fluid in your diffs and T-case. I think that t-case is recommended at 50,000 anyway. As far as brake fluid and ps fluid. You will not hurt anything changing them. I would consider it.

    Pretty much what [MENTION=51590]Pikey[/MENTION] said. They have been in for a few years so doesnt hurt to change them.
