Default first tune up

I'm buying a Ranger today with 70,000 miles and would like to perform a full tune up this weekend on it. It will include:
oil change/filter
spark plugs
transmission flush
differential fluid change
brake flush with DOT 4 fluid
02 sensors

as far as fluids and spark plugs go, which would you recommend. Just what the manual says or is there something better and worth looking into. Thanks!

Well I am in the process of doing a transmission flush. Although my truck is a manual (2003 3.0), Ford stopped making Mercon V, so now the manuals use Mercon ATF (supposed to go in automatics, but dealers recommend this for manuals now). Any brand is good I got castrol.
