7.3 Trucks

So what kind of regular maintenance should be done. I have about 120000 on my truck and have not done a single thing exept change the oil in the motor. What else should be done?

Thanks
CHRIS

Drop your pan on your tranny. Your right at the milage that mine went out. Its always good to do fluid and filter about ever 15k on these trucks.

your absolutely right i have no excuse but i havent done my trans either and i tow with it i heard that if i havent done it by now not to do it at all as the new fluid would give it heart failure whats your opinions. i have had some minut drama with my trans and it may get dumped anyways oh and believe me i should have done it a few times by now i know but id like to know the thoughts on not draining it since i havent for this long thanks
