Cool General maint question on 2015 F250 4x4 auto 6.7

Just turned 119K and have a few long hauling trips coming up. Manual says change out fluids at 150K. My question is should I go ahead and make the fluid changes prior to my trip or wait till I return and do it all then. Looking at transmission, front and rear dif, etc. Anything else I need to pay attention to? This has been a pretty trouble free truck hauling a 40ft, LQ 3horse Sundowner gooseneck trailer.

I'm personally not a fan of performing any maintenance work too closely to a long trip. If you can get it all done in time to drive around town for a couple hundred miles then that is a different story. I just like to make sure that there are no leaks or hiccups (stripped bolt or plug) prior to my trip.

Unless your trip is well over 30k miles leave it till you get back home. @The Evil Twin gave out good info which I tend to follow myself.
