All the fluids: oil, transmission, differential, coolant, brake fluid, power steering, window washing
All the filters: oil, air, cabin, fuel.
Belts, hoses, wiper blades, sparkplugs, PCV. If you're really interested in the PREVENTIVE part of PM: O2 sensors. Yes, expensive, but they are about ready to start causing problems. You could, of course, wait until you get check engine light and fret through troubleshooting at $60 an hour.
Lube 'em if ya got 'em and don't forget the leaf springs (jack it up from the frame and squeeze grease between each leaf in the pack after prying the gap open).
Alignment in addition to the rotation, unless you have a tire package that includes it.
O2 sensors aside, if you want to save the only thing to drop from the list is the hoses but still check them carefully. The idea of this is: when accessing and replacing these items and fluids they'll be forced to put their hands on a lot of things that could be about ready to break or is badly worn. They should identify it to you and you make the decision of how/when to address the problem it presents.
It's very doubtful they'll offer all that in any service package. What they will offer, aside from the oil and filter, is a bunch of 'check this...adjust that' which doesn't really do much but costs a bunch as you found out.
