New to Me: Starting maintenance

I just purchased an 09 F350 with 93K from a used car dealership. That being said I have no way of knowing what cycle the truck is on for maintenance. So today I did the fuel filters, and changed the oil. I also did the airfilter as it was quite dirty. The front differential will need to be changed soon as it was showing signs of age on the wipe card.

Thanks to the info I found on this forum, it was all fairly straight forward.

I would also do a transmission flush, t-case oil, rear diff, and coolant flush as well. That way you can start completely fresh.
