New to Diesel

Hi, Tomorrow I'm picking up my new truck, Its going to be a restless night. Its an 03' extended cad long bed. with 34k. I getting it from a dealership so they are putting all new fluids in. The real point of this post is. I'm wondering what fluids everyone runs, and should I change these fluids when I get a chance or just let them run there course and change when they are due. If this info is somewhere else please point me in the right direction. THANKS A LOT

Just curious, did you get a 7.3 or 6.0?

Also I'd get the VIN # checked in the OASIS forum
