Extra maintenance 96 GMC Yukon 4x4

Unfortunately, it's now my responsibility to handle the maintenance on my Yukon and wanted to make sure I'm not missing anything. I have my maintenance manual and log, so I have kept track. But are there other things, not listed that most people wouldn't know, because they're not car people? Do I need to change my oil from one weight to another between seasons? Do I assume that my antifreeze can handle extreme cold? Sorry to say, but I just filled it up and threw the bottle away, not thinking about checking it the fluid is orange). Okay, enough dumb questions, I can't afford to take it where someone may take advantage of someone with little knowledge. Thank you in advance.

You use the same oil year around. If you have doubt about the AF by all means have it tested. Most any auto shop can do this for you.

flush the anti-freeze. check for intake leak first.
change the gas filter !
check the diffs and transfer case fluid. if they look ok, just top em off.
check and grease the front end.
check the belt and tensioner.
lube the door hinges !

look forward to replacing the :
intake gaskets
fuel injector spider
fuel pump
transfer case
perhaps the trans
around here, the rotors like to rust out

if this truck was ever a working snow plow truck in a salt area = god help you.
