I hope they replaced the timing belt tensioner when they did the belt, as they loose pressure over time and are the cause of many strange cold engine knocking noises.

Wheel bearings and uni's / c/v joints should be properly inspected, keep good oil up to the auto and transfer case, make sure the rear diff has the correct GM additive in it if it is a LSD . Give all of the suspension rubbers etc a good look over as well. Check for any play in the front end but be aware that jackeroos get a little play in the vibration damper on the steering shaft that feeds back as a slight knock in the wheel. Don't know of an easy fix for this yet.....
Overall the jackeroos are a very tough reliable unit and will give you heaps of good service as long as you give them a little back.
See ya Brad
