Well I have had my truck for over a year now and still haven't drained my water separator. But the light hasn't come on for it yet. I should do it soon anyway. I'd make sure you pump in some nice fresh grease into all your zerk fittings. I use marine grease, I just think it's better.

Change the fuel filter every 10K to 15K and check the air filter.
