Preventative maintenance

I just bought a 2001 7.3 F-250 with 212,000 miles. I want to know what I should look out for. What can I do to make this truck last another 200k. I have always changed the oil with my previous vehicles regularly. This is my first diesel truck I have owned so I am kinda of clueless. I am pretty handy, I have alays changed my oil but I am no mechanic. Please let me know how to take care of my freshly broken in 250.

Make sure you follow your fluid/filter change intervals. That is really the best way to keep it running.
