Default Fluid Changes and other maintenance things.

As Ive only had my truck a short time I am going through and changing out fluids and will continue from there to get all the maintenance to where I know everything has been done.

So far, trans fluid changed (rebuilt more or less last month), engine oil (full synthetic with 15,000 mile filter, radiator flushed (4 times in a row till no discolor was seen in the water).

I figure before I move onto things like sensors, valves, plugs, wires... Id just finish up all the fluids. The truck has 109K on so am guessing its time to do em all. So what id like is a list of suggested maintenance things that would be good to do starting with fluids. Am a good hand man / fix em guy but dont have much experience with autos. So if something maybe outta my league, please mention it. Also, on the list is breaks. Fronts are starting to squeak, I looked at rotors(?) and they seem grooved but still very good thickness on em. Have them shaved or replaced?

Any info / suggestions would be great. Thanks!
