Smile 200k Club

I want to be your next President!!!

Hey all! I'm pushing that magical 200,000 miles on my 95 Trep.
First, how do I become a member of the club?
Second, who are all the members?
Third, do you have to blind fold me to take me to be initiated?

Forth, what should i be looking to change/do maintainence wise? timing belt, water pumps, what else could go wrond with a 3.3?(I might regret writting that)
Thanks for the help in advance

One thing you don't need to do is change a timing belt-- the 3.3 has a chain. You might want to have a mechanic evaluate how much slack it has developed to see if it needs to be changed, but I have never heard of one letting go on a 3.3. I have 230K on mine with no problem there. The timing chain is short and the drive gears are metal, not plastic coated, so it's durable.
As to other things, who knows? I can't think of anything that needs to be done maintenance wise just because of the # of miles. Just expect that at this age & mileage there are things that could go, such as a water pump or an alternator. I suggest just waiting until they go. My alternator just went a month ago. Keep on truckin' with regular oil changes and normal maintenance.
