120k mile service?

My truck (99xlt w/ the 2.5l) is getting close to 120k and i'm just wondering what needs to get done? I just recently change the plugs, wires, coil pack, air filter, cleaned the IAC, replaced a faulty TPS and throttle body.

I'm thinking the timing belt is probably due but was wondering if theres anything else.

Thanks,
Marchy

Did the timing belt, and serpantine belt yesterday and boy am i ever glad i did. I was easily able to break both belts. Also checked off new battery and finally got around the finishing the exhaust side of the plugs and wires. I think all i have left is the fuel filter which i'm pretty sure got replaced two or three years ago (need to check the service records as i remember seeing it being changed) and my truck should be good to go for a long time.

How long did it take you to do the timing belt?

I need to do mine on my 2.5, I just have been feeling lazy lately.

took my buddy and I about 4 hours. We had to rent a a pully remover (looks like a chickens foot) and I used this link as a reference on what needed to be done. How to Replace a Ford 2.5 Timing Belt | eHow.com

Its worth noting that I did not remove some of the things they call for, i simply unbolted them so i could move stuff around to get at the timing belt.
