What else "while I'm at it" with a radiator replacement? (1 Viewer)

I just had ACC overhaul the front axle and do the PHH on my 94 FZJ with 161K on the clock. I have the standard greasy engine that's leaking from the oil pump and the distributor O-ring.

The hoses are original and the radiator wasn't holding pressure but I elected to take of this myself.

I got taken care of by Beno at Nalley on a new 3-row brass radiator and I went ahead and got the following Toyota parts:
-all cooling system hoses
-heater control valve
-blue hub fan clutch
-oil pump gasket
-oil pump screws
-Distributor O-ring
-front main crank seal
-2 gallons of Toyota red coolant

NAPA parts:
-Breeze Constant Torque Clamps
-Cap and rotor (forgot those at Toyota)

I've watched the Texasknowhow video a few times and know this is well within my abilities (I have access to a military auto hobby shop with lifts and air tools).

With the radiator out and easy access to the front of the motor, is there any other maintenance or prophylactic replacements I should take care of while I'm in there and there's plenty of room to work?

Gratuitous shot of ACC's work on the axle!
