Default 15000K service

I have a 2010 Dodge Ram with a 5.7 L Hemi that I have had for about a year. It is about to hit 15K and was wondering what kind of service do I need. The dealership is offering a package of the following:

Replace Oil & Filter
Set Tire Pressure
Lubricate Chassis
Check And Top Off All Fluid Levels
Inspect Chassis
Inspect Exhaust System
Inspect Battery And Cables
Inspect All Hoses And Belts
Rotate Tires
Clean & Adjust Brakes
Replace Fuel Filter

Is all of this necessary. None of it sounds too expensive but does the Fuel Filter really need to be replaced within the first 15000K

Thanks for the help,

David

These are the 16,000 mile service jobs listed in the owner's manual for the 2011 Ram 1500:
==========

Change the engine oil and engine oil filter.

Rotate the tires, rotate at the first sign of irregular wear, even if it occurs before 16,000 miles (26 000 km).

If using your vehicle for any of the following: Dusty or off-road conditions.
Inspect the engine air cleaner filter; replace if necessary.

Lube the front drive shaft fitting (2500/3500 (4x4) models only).

Inspect the brake linings, replace if necessary.

Inspect exhaust system. Perform the first inspection at 16,000 miles (26 000 km) or 12 months.

Inspect the front suspension, tie rod ends and boot seals for cracks or leaks and all parts for damage, wear, improper looseness or end play; replace if necessary.
========

Searching through the entire manual I found no reference to the fuel filter, which I find rather strange.

I agree, most of those things you can do yourself if you prefer but I've never heard of the fuel filter having to be replaced at 15K.

Are you talking miles or kilometers?
If miles, and you did the recommended 10K service, then there is nothing special at 15K.

As for the fuel filter....I'd really like to see them replace this. LOL
To the best of my knowledge, the fuel filter is part of the pump assembly in the fuel tank, and is a non-serviceable part.
