That is really good news. The one thing to double check is the tires--it does't matter how good they look, check the DOT date on the tires. They are only good for 5 years from the date of manufacture (not the purchase date unless made and sold in same week). After 5 years tires should be professionally checked (off the rim and inspected from the inside of the tire) yearly.

That's a great idea. I do have a small one that I can pack in the jeep to take out there.

Merry Christmas

Even Michelin, who would love to sell you new tires, doesn't state that! You should have them inspected each year after 5 and absolutely replaced at 10. I went 8+ on ours with no trouble.
