What does she need?
Hey guys, since its the first time the weathers been nice since I picked up my 2005 4.7 lorado I wanna give her an overhaul with fresh fluids. Im gonna drop it off at my mechanic one day this week before I go to work, and before you say do it yourself, I work 40 hours a week and just cant find the time, and my family has been using this guy for years and years and hes a great guy so I more then trust him to take care of me. My list of things I KNOW need to be done are as follows:

Oil Change (did it once over the winter, but it wont hurt it to have another)
Coolant Flush
Front and Rear Differential Fluid Replacement
Brake pads and rotors

The thing I think I may need/want to do but need someone how knows what they are talking about to confirm is a brake fluid flush. Since I am getting new pads and rotors im assuming it wouldnt be a bad idea. Is there anything else you guys think I should do to give her a nice fresh start for the summer? lol Oh and keep in mind its a 2005 4.7 WK lorado, with 77,000 miles on the clock. If anyone has ideas, or knows about the stuff I have listed, can you make a list of things I need to pick up, or fluids needed in the project? THANKS!

do you know when the transfer case and/or transmission fluid was swapped?

I have no idea, the truck came with some of the servise records but I'm worried it was never changed
