What to do?

Hey guys, this is my first thread ever so bear with me. I've been searching through some of the threads and found many maintenance and general tips. My question is, what kind of mileage should I do this at? I bought the truck back in August, with 62k miles. Its a 2001 Edge 2wd auto 3.0v6 . It has 73k now, and I have no clue of its history (Bought it at a dealer.) I was thinking of doing all of the following:

Fuel Filter
Trans fluid flush/fill
Cam sensor maybe?
Rear diff fluid change/fill
Grease the ball joints/suspension

Mods I was thinking:
Under drive pulley
Tuner
Larger wheels/tires etc.

Anything else you guys would reccomend?

you defiantly coming up into the cam sensor replacement mileage.

the suspension should be greased every time you do an oil change.

fuel filter should be done every 30k.

doing a FULL fluid flush at 100k would be a pretty good idea. brake, POWER STEERING FOR SURE, transmission (and new tranny filter), diff, and coolant.

Depending on your driving style you might might want to do your brakes as well. at least front pads.
