Do you know when the last tune up on the truck was done? A good place to start would be to replace the cap & rotor, plugs and plug wires, and probably change the engine oil & filter. It would also be a good idea to change the rear end fluid and the tranny fluid. Might want to also have your balljoints checked out if they havent already.

Good rule of thumb is every 50,000. Some plugs say 100,000.

I'd do plugs, cap & rotor every 50k & wires every 100k.

This spring I am going to go crazy with "tune-up" type stuff. Front and Rear Diff fluid, transfer case fluid, tranny fluid is getting changed. As well as new NGK 2262 plugs, oil change, coolant flush and fill, etc. Am I missing anything here?

all that sounds great, though pass on the fuel filter. its in the tank and part of the pump. grab a new belt as well and change/clean your air filter
