Common wear out parts?

The Moog thread got me thinking, what have you replaced at what mileage?

I've owned my truck since 123k and have done
4x4 actuator at 130k
Alternator at 136k
Patched a fuel line at 138k
Needs a t-case output seal 140k
Needs front end parts, started getting loose at 130k

I'm hoping to plow with my truck this winter and am planning on putting some "work" into it so it's worthy. I'm thinking some new front end parts, new clutch, maybe a t-case chain, new battery, fluids, anything else i should replace ahead of time?

Re: Common wear out parts?

Yeah I've had the tie rods u joints and ball joints. Also fuel filter cv joints and the ac compressor. My 4x4 actuator is soon to be next and a throttle body gasket as well. Seals it seems like millions of them but I've changed just about every single one once.
