P-38 rover high mileage overhaul

My dad called me and asked me to get some advice. Sorry I'm not posting about d's but I figured some of you have some rangie experience. Well what my dad wants to do is take the Range to the local rover garage and get it running like a new one. It has 80,000 miles on it and it is a 97 4.0 with a coil spring conversion. Aside from the obvious fluids, belts, hoses, and breaks are there any other notorious items on a 97 that are worth replacing? He really wants to keep this car on the road for a long time, what would you guys suggest?

I can't say I have seen too many questions pop up on P38s, but aside from the obvious normal stuff I would check over everything real well for rust, although there may not be much if it's from Florida. But like they say, if it's not broke, don't fix it.

I think hippert has it right!!! tweak your Uname to rustyp38 and check out http://www.rangie.com.

Honestly, go over the electronics with a comb!!! From what I've read.... Lucas is a killer on the P38s! But if you understand 'em... It can be a great vehicle!

It's no biggy, what I ment was I haven't seen to many posts on P38's and not just on this forum but a few others I check out. I say check it out, if nothing is wrong then don't worry.
