Question Whats my best option?

Alright, truck just hit 125,000 miles and Im due for an oil change. I would like to do a few other things as well. (Trans fluid change, Diff fluid change, and Coolant flush) Im just wondering if it would be better (and cheaper??) to have someone else like the dealer do this for me? Any advice would be great.

I would let the dealer do everything but the coolant and oil change.

-Valvoline (or similar) 5W-40 synthetic and maybe two bottle of Rev-X for engine oil.
-ELC coolant, and Restore and VC9 for flushing procedures.

Yea I always do my own oil and fuel filter changes. Planning on using Rotella T6 5W-40 and the Motorcraft filter. How hard is the coolant flush procedure and does anyone have a write-up on it?
