Default Replacing the radiator, Anything else?

Well I finally got a new radiator to replace my old leaking one. Sowhile i have my radiator out, I thought thatmaybe this would be a good opportunity to replace some of the other componants that are prone to premature failure. So here's the question: What parts would be a good idea to replace while i can get at them easily? Also a ball park estimate as far as price is concerned would be great.

Don't know how many miles are on your vehicle, but hoses, thermostat, perhaps fan clutch (if it's acting up)...oh, yeah - coolant.

Any idea on how much a thermostat is?

$5-$10...

I'd definitely say both upper and lower radiator hoses and clamps. Also a new radiator cap is kind of obvious. For that I'd go with a Stant Safety-Cap with the pressure release lever.
