What should i expect to pay?

Figured since i got my truck like 4 months ago and dont exactly know how well maintained it was i should do a tune up.(cap,rotor,plugs,wires) i was wondering how much i should expect this to cost me. Guess i could call the local parts store but am at work and plan on going there right after and dont want to be totally blown away.

for one what year is your truck all like 93+ rangers DONT have rotors and cap because its electonic ignition. get some platnuim plugs should run you $10 or so there good because you dont have to change them that often. get like air filter, wires, do an oil change if you want. hell pull off the tires and check all the brakes if it has over 40000 i will almost bet the rear wheel cylinders one of them is frozen up.

price and effect was put in to play in that comment, i heard that was really expensive to do, maybe i got false info, idk. but if he is worried about cost and wants a good tune up i would put those rear brakes close to last place.
