Moving To College: HELP ME MAKE A COMPLETE TUNE UP LIST!

I have a 97 2.3 I4 automatic, Ranger. It has approx 125,000 miles. At the end of the summer I will be moving to Casper, Wyoming, from Kentucky(approx 1500 miles), and staying until I graduate in Spring of 2011.
What I am needing is some help.

I am wanting to do a complete tune up on my little truck.
It is very mechanically sound.
I am just wanting to do some preventative maintainance.
What all should I do?

Thanks!!!


I am speaking in terms of everything:

Engine, and Braking system:

Here is what my list is so far...any to add?

Timing belt, and tensioner
Coolant Flush
Thermostat
Lower Radiator hose(upper just recently replaced)
Oil
Filters(air, oil, Fuel)
Pcv
Plugs(new wires just recent)
Serpentine belt

What all should I do to the brakes, to ensure they are in Tip top shape?

Thanks

I would be sure to change the tranny fluid. A good engine means nothing with a shot transmission.
