Scott,
you've covered it pretty well. coupla things. now would be the time to do any dressing or modifications on the female fittings for the fluid lines in and out on the passenger side of the trans.
flush the trans cooler in the radiator. strongly consider installing an aftermarket trans cooler.
consider installing a drain plug in the trans pan. it makes future maintenance much easier with a clean way to draw down the trans fluid
consider installing a shift kit
and of course, the obvious, if the trans has lots of miles and/or abuse on it, now would be the time for a rebuild.
