Crewzin posted this a few months back:

"My 01 says 120,000 but I'm not waiting that long and at 90K now, I'm looking around for the right place to do it. If you did a search you probably already saw that the regular drive belts, belt tensioner, water pump, oil pump and engine mounts should also be looked at real closely as they might be in need of changing also."

Be advised that this is not a "fun" job and it is very tedious and time consuming. Almost all the fluids except oil need to be drained, A/C & radiator, the engine jacked up to get at one of the mounting bolts. My mechanic was super pizzed at what was involved.
Good luck,
