Owners manual should tell you what needs to be done. But if it was me I would change all fluids.

Funny you mention that. I know several people who advise don't service the tranny unless you do it every 30k or so. My old boss serviced the tranny at 100k on 2 trucks prior to the plowing season and both trannys blew that winter. He said never again.

Anybody want to comment on that theory? I'm not promoting that but I know a bunch of guys who say not bother with the tranny service.

Preventative maintenance contributes to the longevity of any vehicle.
Engine oil is the most important fluid. I also own an 01 2500 HD 6L gas engine
with 65K on the meter.I use Valvoline durablend 10w30.The trany fluid in my truck is original, and will stay that way untill my trusted transmission expert tells me to change it, when he does, he will also drill, and install a drain plug in the torque converter.
At 100k, the spark plugs should be changed.
The coolant should be tested for deterioration, flushed, and refilled as needed.The coolant in my truck is original.
You live an area where rust is a issue.Inspect all brake line for deteration.replace as needed.Inspect the brakes, steering, and suspension
parts for wear, replace as needed.
