Band adjustment is not hard. Get a Haynes manual and it details all you need to know. If you do it yourself you will need a Torque wrench. I mention that because everything else isn't all that abnormal, but the torque wrench isn't something everyone has.
At 30K I would change the fluids in both differentials as well. For plugs, and we had a thread on this a few months back. I recommend Champion truck plugs. They are not platinum, but they are heavy duty and work great in all vehicles I've run them in. Don't do the multi-tip things, they don't make a noticable difference and cost a lot.
Sorry I didn't post earlier, I overlooked it.
