Used 6.0, need advice on maintenance

Hi. New guy here. I just bought a used 2006, F250 4X4 with 6.0 PSD. Truck has 105,000 miles and seems to run very well. Truck won't be a daily drive and will mainly be used to tow a 8500 pound travel trailer and for 4 wheeling.

My question is what maintenance should I plan to do right off the bat? To be on the safe side, I'll assume that the previous owner did not do maintenance on it right before trading it in so it is probably due.

I've done a search and some reading and for this weekend, I currently have planned:

Oil change with new filter (including gasket and O-rings).
Pull EGR, clean and re-install.
Remove and clean K&N filter (it's very dirty)

The rear diff cover has the usual surface rust on it, so I'm thinking of buying a replacement aluminum one (Magtech or similiar), and changing the diff fluid.

All of these are easy to do.

Any other advice on what to look for or what maintenance you guys would want to do to a truck with 105,000 miles?
