recently bought a 04 2500 cummins with 110??? miles. would like to change all fluids out in the truck so i know what kind and how old they are. would this be a smart thing to do or just a wast of money. already changed the oil and the antifreeze looks good

Engine oil and filterCoolant and ThermostatPower Steering Fluid (Flush both the steering box and the hydrobooster)Brake Fluid (this includes disassembly of the callipers and cleaning them out)Transmission Fluid (Auto or Manual)Gear lube in the axlesThen you know you started with a clean slate. I would allow extended drain times for all fluids and for flushing I would flush till the output is clean too. As for brakes I highly suggest disassembly of the callipers because just bleeding pushes all the debris in the bottom of the calliper and later on you'll have dragging brake problem. Don't ask how I know...:whistle:
