Truck with 90,000 miles...what should i replace?

I posted in the snapshots pics of my new truck. Its a 03 ranger xlt 4x4 4.0sohc, 5speed manual, with 4.10 gears. It has 90,000 miles and i got it at a dealer auction. Good thing i got it for $8,000. I really like it a lot. But since it already has 90,000 miles i was thinking that it might be a good time for a tune up, or maybe just change some things. Like the sensors and clean the maf. Change the oil and tranny fluid. Stuff like that. But i really dont know much about this 4.0sohc engine. So any sugguestions on stuff i should change/replace would be great

also i do find it kinda hard to get into gear. Now this is the first stick truck i ever drove. So a hurst shifter is going to be ordered monday night. And hopefully that will solve my problem.

OK, if it was mine this is what I would do: Plugs, Wires, Air & fuel filter, oil & filter change, change coolant(flush), change front & rear diff. oil & tranny oil.
Inspect brakes & repai as needed. Service battery /posts & cables. I'm sure I'm forgetting something thats what I always did on fairly high mileage vehicles I bought. Some might be an overkill but you've covered all the bases & then once your done you have a clean slate & then maintain as recommended by Ford.

Couldnt have said it any better!, Fore sure, ide do plugs and wires, Fuel filter for sure (i do 2 a year) i mean just that stuff is probably $60 MAX and youll feel and notice better mpg & overall smooth operation of the truck

open you owners manual.....look for Ford's service suggestions at 90,000 miles.....do what it says for 90,000 and what it says for the next 2 lower milage IF the 90,000 miles is only an oil and filter change...

I would also change the transfer case fluid, it is very easy and doesn't require much oil and also the pcv valve. I would also check the tire pressure if you just got the truck.
