Hey dudes

My Patrol (see below) is up for its 150,000km service. This is my first Patrol so Im not 100% sure but what thinigs should I be looking at doing for a 4x4 of this age/milage?
I dont want to take it to Nissan because.... I wont even bother explaining.

I recently replaced the intercooler and idler arm/pully and belt. I can do quite a bit myself.
Im planning on:
*dropping both diff oils
*engine oil
*air/fuel filter change
*tranny fluid
*transfer fluid

When was your coolant changed last? (some like to get radiator flushed about now too)
when were your wheel bearings done?
Checked brakes etc I assume?
somewhere king pin bearings and cv's can use a look too...

Nissan recommends major service at 40000km intervals, which make 160000km one of those.
150000 km is only lube service (change oil and oil filter element) and check this and that.

Have a chat to a few diesel mechs and they will recommend changing the glow plugs at around 100k km's as good insurance. Tip's fall off into engine!
I use Delo 400 and Castrol VMX-80 in the gearbox. Whatever the dealer uses is in the diffs/transfer.

Also clean your MAF sensor when you replace your air filter
