maintenance

coming up on 40k miles on the truck, shes an '04 reg cab edge. i bought it Feb. and since then i have done all the mods listed in my signature. I am running Amsoil Full Synthetic and jsut put it in like 2 months ago. I would like to have her tuned up and wanna know what you guys do as standard check-ups on your trucks

I will do --

- tranny flush and fill
- have rear drums cleaned and new shoes put on
- replace diff. fluid (will do myself)
- radiator flush and fill

WHAT ELSE DO YOU GUYS CONSIDER VERY IMPORTANT IN A TUNE UP??
I only want to have the major components checked up on

Look over all your suspension, especially balljoints and tie rod ends. Look for torn or worn boots. If anything looks bad plan on replacing it. I'd check the rear drums and see how much pad you have left.
