Question maintains questions

I just bought a used 2002 f250 diesel 7.3 with 200k. I was wondering what maintains I need to do beside the transmission and oil change.

These are some of the things I could think of.
Rear end oil?
Glow pugs ?
Seals?
Belts?

When you get a truck with high miles you never know what has been done. So I would strart at the front and make you way back.

Fuel filter, Oil and filter should be first, followed by coolant that is only good for 100k max. Brake fluid check belt. glow plugs and seals not as bad unless something is wrong. Change trans fluid and filter then front and rear diff.

That would be a good start, I bet someone will jump in help out a little more. Hope you enjoy you new toy.

just like he said, if its a liqiud, belt, hose, or filter, i would change it.

and pull the brakes and check them too, especially the inside pad, not just the outside.
