50,000 : what next?

Well, I'm bringing her in for an oil change and a new fuel filter (and a probable loose belt tensioner...again). I just passed 50,000 on the truck, and am wondering what else i should have ford do. Plugs?Wires? what else?

Any ideas would be great!

Be careful when using the seafoam. I think it's partially responsible for the bad piston rings on my sammi. They were on their way out anyways, but the seafoam didn't help as much as I'd anticipated.

Dang the thread title confused me. I thought the site had hit 50,000 posts. I thought it was kinda crazy we went from 40 to 50 so fast but this makes much more sense.

BTW that engine is just getting warmed up give that baby some care and it will be good for another 100.

The ripoff dealer that caused my truck to blow up after thier 'repairs' recommended a cabin air filter on my old truck. I looked him, kinda snickered, and walked out the door. lol
