Pretrip maintenance and work

So guys I'm moving to az from northern California and I was just wondering what you guys think I should inspect change or whatever I'm taking it to the local dealership in ties day to have them go through the engine and tell me what up (cylinder contribution tests & engine performance testing) the truck has just under 213000 miles I'm pretty sure there original injectors but I guess well see how those are holding up if the do end up being bad does anybody have any suggestion a good set of stage 1s I'm liking swamps baby swamps for the warrenty but any help is greatly appreciated

Ya fluids are a given and I know I need a belt because it screams at about 2000 rpm when it's cold and I'm replacing my radiator this week and the only reason I'm going
To the dealer is because the local ma and pa shops try to **** you harder than the dealerships and I really just wanna know about the injectors I feel like there about done

Um Terry he's moving from Cali. If the truck is running good, change the oil and belt, check the other fluids, tire's, brakes, u-joints and drive it. Also run some power service additive or equivalent in your fuel that will help the injectors live longer.

Fluids and filters, I ran cross country with having the dealer do their free inspection telling me I was leaking brake fluid or diff oil, pulled wheels, inspected diff and replaced fluid, truck hauled fine, just check the stuff and run it bro
