Some needed TLC and upgrades

So I'm still in school but will start working in January and I'll have a good cash flow straight to mod money. My 05 Lariat is almost at 120k probably will be a little over that by January and I'm taking it to a local shop to do most of the following just because they are good guys and can do it all.
-Rebuild fuel injectors (they are well known for this)
-Fixing squealing/leaking rear axle
-New DIDO magnaflow
-Powdercoat chrome tips black
-Replace belts
-Radiator and coolant flush (just did brake and transmission will be done with rear axle)
-Replace brake cables (only thing I haven't replaced and still have soft pedal)
-New fuel filter
-Rotate tires and alignment

I know some of this stuff I can do and there is some stuff that I haven't listed because I am going to do them myself, she just needs some well deserved TLC now that I properly can.

What else do yall thing should be added to the list? I'm starting this early so I can slowly get some of the stuff together. Thanks for any advice.

Brake cables? Did you replace your calipers in the past? To bleed these brake systems properly need a good scanner to open the abs circuit while bleeding the brakes as per the work manual. The old days are gone with regular maintenance. These new vehicles have a certain way of doing things. And if your doing a coolant flush put a new thermostat in while the coolant is out.

I'm going to have the cables replaced, I changed the front left caliper and then went to a shop to have the brake fluid flushed then since it never had before to my knowledge and thanks for the tip about the thermostat, I'll add it to the list.
