air filter, oil change, fuel filter, plugs, wires, maybe run a can of seafoam through it, clean the throttle body, and if you want a new coil pack.

Might even want to clean the MAF as well.

But other than the list above, go ahead and check differentials and transfer case fluid if applicable to your vehicle. Alignment if needed and check if any suspension parts needs to be replaced or re-greased (if applicable as well).

And the everyday stuff like properly inflated tires and clean air filters. Everything helps!
