That list looks pretty complete! Throw in a trans and diff service and you've done pretty much all that you can do until something wears out or breaks.

The only additional thing that I did on my car is replaced the upstream 02 sensors. They both still worked but my car is getting along in miles and I don't like it when stuff breaks.

I will add the 02 sensors to the list. I was thinking about changing out some of the other sensors and the egr valve as well

Check your swaybar end link bushings, and your balljoints and tierod ends. Throw a can of SeaFoam in the tank. Check tire pressures, brake pads and rotors. U-joints, check and replace if needed. Power Steering fluid flush and re-fill, and replace brake fluid. You be surprised hell much better a brake pedal feels with newly flushed brake fluid and re-fill.

Forgot to mention, Blinker fluid, and headlight flint level. Replace the flint as needed.
