    You should be following the guide in the owner's manual. If you don't have one, they are available on-line.

    If you purchased the truck used, following the owner's guide is a must (the previous owner may not have performed proper maintenance).

    At 262K miles, yeah, I'd do a transmission service, but I'd start with dropping the transmission pan and changing the transmission filter. Flushes are great, in that they replace all the fluid, but if your filter is clogged, the transmission flush isn't going to fix that. At that much mileage, the filter should definitely get some attention. Transmission fluid flush is optional after changing the filter and replacing a portion of the fluid (about 4 quarts?) in the pan drop. Personally, I would do the filter/pan drop, and then in 6 months do a fluid flush.

    Recommend also cleaning the throttle body, checking the plugs (and replacing if necessary) and doing a fuel filter replacement (can't recall if that model year has an inline or not... if it does, replace it.).

    How is the suspension? That's a butt-load of miles on a 5 year old vehicle!
