truck maintance

I'm getting $200 tomorrow for my stock wheels and tires and I want to spend the money on some maintanence for my truck. I think I am going to do a transmission flush. What else do you guys suggest. The only maintanence I have done is regular oil changes since I bought they truck last june. It has 31,000 miles on it also.

Check out your manuel. Mine says that every 30k miles I need to do some extra stuff like change out tranny oil or t-case oil, somethign like that. I don't remember exactly what it is but read your manuel.

I bought it used and they didn't give me a manual. That's why I was wondering what you guys did around 30k.

Greace chassis, trans flush & fluid change, coolant flush & fluid change, power steering flush & fluid change, change engine oil, T-case fluid change, diff(s) fluid change, check tire pressure, have tires balanced & rotated, check brakes for wear, change air filter & cabin filter (if newer trucks have it), and re-greace the muffler bearing(s) lol.

That's all I can think of.

i do matience at a ford dealer, so here are the miles.
30k matience includes trans flush and fuel filter. also air filter if you havent changed it in a while. everything else should be alright.
45k is air filter and coolant flush if its the green coolant.
yellow coolant is good for like 90k
p/s fluid should be changed around 45-60k depending on the look.
belt at 40k
rear diff fluid and front should be changed at 100k, but i would prob do it sooner then that.
if you wheel you truck, i would do the transfer case and diff's at 50k.
i think thats about it..
