Default 2006 WK 4.7 GC Laredo what parts to change for smoother newer ride

Hello,

Jeep is still running excellent, 258,000km now. I've done all regular liquid and oils replacements, changed a few parts like water pump over the years etc...nothing major.

The ride is still going well, maybe the steering wheel is starting to feel like your driving an elder vehicle, but overall very satisfied it's last 10 years.

What parts would you look into changing now? For a better newer vehicle feeling ride & steering?

All those bushings etc? Anything I can do to make the steering feel more tighter.

I changed my shocks, struts, strut mounts in 2012, the guy at the garage said the back ones need to be changed but I have lifetime warranty on those so just have to pay a bit of labor.

I intend on keeping it for as long as it carries out, perfect vehicle for the tough winters up here and maybe get something else for the summer months. Thanks!

I"ll chip in. With that many miles on it you probably need to replace the front wheel bearings and tie rod ends. A new steering damper wouldn't be out of line either. U-joints may be getting loose and need replacement also.
