need maintanance timeline.

my 2010 has had all dealer service to 30,000 kms then i deleted it and put a spartan on but someone stole the owners manual out of my truck and i have no idea what i should be doing as far as maintanance goes,looking at hubs diff oil what ever. i now have 65k on it and am due for my 4th oil change so i was thinking of putting it back to stock and letting the dealer do the 60k service but wondering what is needed and if i should get them to do anything else. i change the oil (t6 5w40) and fuel filters every 8-10 kms. i know its overkill on fuel filters but i sleep better. The truck is babied but the hardest thing on it is the wife!! we live in a small town so lots of short trips and cold A** winters!!. no heavy hauling just 1400 km round trips four or five times a year with my mustang on an open carhauler. i know the wife has no idea on taking it easy on the truck in cold and probably has no idea about deisels she says "it's just a truck and i drive it" so that may be as bad as bag driving it!!

Conversion 10,000 miles = 16,000 km (for easy math)

Oil+filter - 8,000 km
Fuel filter - 16,000 km
Coolant - 2 years but check condition at least yearly
Front diff - 240,000 km (depending on use)
Rear diff - 160,000 km
Transmission - 48,000 km
Transfer - 96,000 km (depending on use)
Power steering - 96,000 km
Brake fluid - 2 years


Some of those are just recommended. Some are actual. That's what I do though. YMMV

Transfer case XL12
Transmission Mercon LV or SP (whichever is cheapest)


If you put the rear diff in the water a lot when offroading or launching boats, you may want to change that fluid out more often.

You'll want synthetic 75W140 with friction modifier if you have a 250, but you may want to look at the tag on the rear if there is one. There are a few different rears in these things so I am not 100% certain on what you'll need.
