I'm planning on changing the rear end differential fluid and transmission fluid in my 2006 prerunner this week. What is the best oil for both?

make sure you get the appropriate fluid for each. i put in full synthetic for my front, rear, and t-case. just make sure that you install LSD additive in the rear diff if you need it.

If you have an Auto tranny make sure you get the fluid from Toyota. Personally I wouldn't trust any aftermarket fluids in my tranny.

What kind of transmission do you have?
If its an AUTO - you shouldn't need to change it for 100K miles (per owners manual). And even so, there's no dipstick to the Auto tranny and it's a somewhat complicated process. Do some researching online.
