Just bought an 01 Excursion 7.3 see pics

well after months of great advice on this site I pulled the trigger on this 2001 Excursion 4x4 Limited with 100k miles.

I drove 3 hours to buy it and was extremely shocked to see it was in such great condition for a 2001 with 100k miles.

I am loving it so far. I know you guys love pics so here you go!

What are some most do's for a vehicle with 100k miles? I am thinking for sure change the fuel filter and transmission service and maybe even drain the axles. what else?

Good looking rig!
I am not sure about what to replace @ 100k.
I just bought a 2000 with 215k on it. I replaced air filter, oil filter, oil, shocks, o-ring in fuel drain bowl, front & rear diff's oils, ball joints, (steering box, add-a-leaf & tires are next.)
I straight piped it & added a tuner.
I also checked my brakes and they are good to go.
I am weary of changing the tranny fluid, I have heard horror stories of peoples tranny's slipping and giving out after replacing the fluid.

2003 F350 Dually SC LB 4x4 6.0 Lariat
