Default Newb with service interval questions

I have an '07 Ram 2500. Some of the service intervals caught my attention....coolant at 5 years, and Auto trans fluid at 100k. These seem long. Has anyone had any issues here, specifically with the ATF? All previous autos I've owned, I've methodically had flushed at about every 30k miles. I don't want to waste a bunch of money doing stuff the truck doesn't need, but that's about the longest service interval I've ever seen for an auto.

i would do your tranny at 30K
diff at 30k
t-case at 60k
oil & filter every 6000
fuel filter every 9000 to 1200 miles
coolant 5 years or 100,000 miles
