If you are only at 12,000 don't sweat a thing.
Just keep up with regular oil and filter changes and replace the coolant at regular intervals. I've been using South Bay Auto for years and have been quite happy with their work.
Also, get a scangauge to monitor oil, coolant and tranny fluid temps. Hubert at SBA can cover all of that easily.
If you ever do have a major problem, I'd use Sunrise Ford in north hollywood. They have a separate truck service center and see a lot of diesel trucks and vans.
