Oasis is a report run by the dealer that can tell you what has been done to the truck (TSB's, fixes, etc.) at the dealer (any of them).
Oil analysis because it'll tell you a lot about the health of your motor. If there's excess metals, fuel in oil, coolant in oil, etc. It's cheap too.
Pretty much everything Drew said is spot on. I'd also add that you change your oil filter every 5k miles (and oil too) and change your fuel filters every 10k miles. Drain water every month or 1000 miles. Get fuel additive (I like the Ford stuff) that boosts cetane and lubricates the fuel system.
Check your coolant regularly (level and nitrates) or swap out for new coolant (like CAT EC-1 ELC).
Change the trans filter and fluids, transfer case fluid, and diff fluid as recommended. Flush your brake system regularly.
I'd make sure to get the EGR elbow to go with the delete.
It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.
