Question Tune up parts

I'm getting ready to have a tune up done on my 3.9. I searched in here, but besides plugs and wires, I haven't seen any other needed parts mentioned for a tune up. Are there any other parts that may need/should be replaced at the same time?

The plugs I'm thinking of getting are the E3 plugs and the ThunderVolt 8.2mm wires. I've seen some here talking about the NGK Iridium's but the part store website say they are 'not an exact fit' for my 3.9.

BTW, the plugs and wires I'm looking at fit my limited budget, lol. Other than that, any suggestions?

Don't get E3 plugs, they're just a gimmick... just pick up a set of AC Delco plugs, they're made by NGK

By 'Tune Up' their are various ways; below is what i do every year.

Wire ( AC Delco )
Plugs ( NGK )
PCV Valve ( Check the grommet to see if it's worn out )
Fuel Filter ( OEM or regular auto store brand such as FRAM OR you can use K&N )
Air Filter ( OEM or regular auto store brand such as FRAM OR you can use K&N )
Oil Change / Oil Filter ( I stick with Mobil1 Syn. and use a Mobil1 filter or Bosch
Coolant Flush ( I always do one before winter gets here and one during spring )
Top all fluids
Tire Rotation ( If needed )
Clean battery terminals
Clean throttle body

That's right ^ I forgot to mention about the fuel filter, but in general those are the things i would change in a car as a tune up if needed. Thanks for mentioning, waterfowler76.
