Replacing the Valve Cover Gasket

I am replacing the valve cover gasket on my 2002 Ford Ranger 2.3L. What else should I inspect/replace while I have everything open? I know to look at the intake manifold gaskets and the PCV valve, anything else? Also, any tips from someone who has replaced one of these before would be greatly appreciated. It looks like it will be rather annoying to get it all open. Thank you!
