10k Miles, what should I do?

I just ordered a Gibson cat back for my 2006 FX4. Over the weekend I was planning on doing the following:

Oil change with Mobil 1 and a Motorcraft filter.
Fuel Injector cleaner
Rotate Tires
Install the exhaust!
Clean the dirt out of my engine bay.
Hook up the ScanGauge and route the wires

Anything else I should do while I'm at it?

check balljoints and stuff
grease any zerk fittings
check air filter, if factory, beat it on the ground to get any loose dirt off

Sit in a lawn chair looking at it, being happy you only have 10K on it.

Yes, I completely agree with that. I'm feeling the pain of 72k this week.

I've only had the truck since October of 2007. 10k miles in 7 months. You do the math.
