joining the family

Hey, all. Just wanted to share my excitement and ask a couple of questions... Just bought a 2002 f350 114k miles, extended cab, automatic, long bed, frame and under carriage in great shape, runs great, shifts great, just got serviced with a 2/15 inspection sticker.. Out the door for $13,000..

I'm fairly familiar with the 7.3s as they have been in my family/group of friends for several years, but I wanted some advice from you knowledgeable guys out there.. Aside from fluids and the normal tune-up, what are some things I should look into doing before I put any serious mileage on this rig? Any problematic components around this mileage? With only 114k I know she's a baby, but I wanna take all precautions possible. I also have read awesome reviews and heard great things about the opti lube xpd, i know the low sulfer diesel isnt great in terms of lubricity properties. If a new buyers thread already exists, send me in the right direction. Thanks ahead, everyone!
