Normal Maintenance on 06?

I am the new owner of a 2006 PS, I would like to do most of my maintenance myself. Should I buy a manual? Which one?

Do most guys service thier own trannys and rear ends or do you need specialy tools?

It has 100k so I would to make sure it runs smooth another 100k

Thanks

How much does your dealer charge to change oil?

What does it cost to buy the oil and do it yourself? $90?

Quick lubes have charged me about 100 bucks. I just changed my oil and filter for 55 dollars total. Rotella 15w40. Pretty simple for me. I just slide a 5 gallon paint bucket under the truck and pull the plug. Takes 15 minutes and i know it is done right and i even lube the zerk fittings. The 45 dollars saved goes toward.....

My local NAPA store is having a 1 day 50 percent off all filters sale on april 22nd. I will be stocking up. I also have a few tractor supply coupons and i will buy oil there since they have it on sale for 10.99 a gallon. Farm use no tax.

I have dreams of painting this car YELLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I let the dealer change fluids. I'm due for trany flush, if the dealer does it they can flush the TQ. A trany shop can probably do that to.

I will have the dealership do the first one and flush the tranny so I know its done for the next 30k driving.

Anything else I should have them do to a truck with 100k?
