change tranny, diff, engine, power steering, and brake fluids. Also all the filters you mentioned and sparks is a must. It can be all done by yourself if you have jacks stands. congrats on ownership, and press all buttons to see what functions dont work. I'd also say a nice interior clean w cleaning and conditioning of leather. clay bar and wax exterior. Thats what i did.
