    My 04 seems a little sluggish. I bought it with 125,xxx miles on it and now has 145,xxx. I dont know when the last time the truck had a good tune-up. What all should I put on the truck? Plugs? fuel filter? coil packs? Thanks for the advice.

    all that plus,

    air filter (replace or wash out), replace both diffs fluids, transfer case fluids, clean MAF & throttle body. I also would recommend some gumout or BG44K additive in the gas tank to flush everything out.

    Yeah, all the above.
    But when you do all that, if it's still running sluggish, think about replacing your Catalytic Converters. I just replaced mine, and got an additional 5 MPG and noticeably more power. Just FYI.
