Question Maintenance Questions (rearend/tranny)

My 01 F-350 w/ auto trans had 85K miles when I got it 2 years ago. Now it is close to 95K. I am getting ready to do some more in depth maint.

I see alot of threads about different rear ends and front ends using different oils and friction modifiers. How do you find out what axles you have & what oil to use??

Here is my list I am going to get done in the next 2 months.
Is there something else missing that I should look at?

#1- Cange fluids in front & rear axles

#2- Flush radiatior & coolant system install ambulance style hose & thermostat

#3- Tranny filter and fluid change

#4- Transfer Case fluid change

#5- EBP sensor & tube clean/replace

You should consider adding a coolant filter,if you don't have one already.Dieselsite.com sells an external transmission filter kit with a spin on filter.It plumbs into the transmission cooler lines."Double filtering" the fluid may extend the life of your tranny.Here's another website that has lots of good information: Welcome to guzzle's Ford PSD Maintenance Web Page
