60k service includes, but is not limited to. Changing the oil, oil filter, servicing the transmission. Rotating the tires. Changing the cabin filter (if equipped) and changing the air filter. Checking the brakes, checking the driveshaft, checking the exhaust, checking the wheel bearings, checking the cooling system and inspecting the front suspension.

Personally, I would change the spark plugs, change the diff fluid, flush the brake fluid, do an induction service and replace the belt.

Here is the 60,000 mile check as listed on the Ford service site. Which as you will see NGM has already spelled out. When you get to this page on the left side click on maintenance schedule and go through the steps

Default When to really flush your fluids!

As a new member please, forgive my grammer. But, I could really use some real expert advice. I own a F-150 XLT SuperCrew with about 69,500 miles on her. As she is more of a show truck and a daily commuter, she is not driven hard and is maintained very well. My question is when is the Engine Coolant and Transmission fluid really needing to be changed in this trucks. I have been to several site's for info only to be confused more. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Depending on the use. im flushing my transmission fluid every 30k. engine coolant i just changed but i keep monitoring it for dirt. if found some, i just replace it. its really cheap and dont take long to do it! its like $45 dollars tops.

I survived the change of broken spark plugs in the F150....
But my transmission didn't make it to 75000 miles....

Yeah but you would have thought that the induction service would have been in the 60K for the price $500. Just had the next service interval done, 65K, and it needed this service, another $225.
