Maintenance Suggestions

Hey guys, gonna do some maintenance on my truck and want to make sure I'm covering everything and want to know if im missing anything or if you guys suggest anything else that I do.

BTW I have a 2009 Tacoma Access Cab with the v6 4.0 Manual transmission with around 60,000 Miles

Also if you guys have some experience and preference with certain products that would be great!!!

What I am going to do:

>Front and Rear Differential and Transfer Case Oil Change:
-5 quarts 75W-90 gear oil

>Manual Transmission Oil Change:
-3 Quarts Redline MT-90 (75W-90) Gear Oil

>Oil Change:
-5.5 Quarts 5W-30 Valvoline Full Synthetic
-Mobil 1 filter or OEM Filter

>MAF Sensor:
-MAF Sensor Cleaner (Not sure what brand is good??)

>TB Cleaning:
-TB and Intake Cleaner (Not sure what brand is good??)

>Air Filter:
-Usually get a fram but would like to get something better...
SUGGESTIONS???

>In-Cabin Air Filter:
-Going to build the washable/re-usable one

>Spark Plugs:
-Denso plugs

>Grease Zerks:
-What type of grease you guys recommend?

>Brake Fluid:
-DOT3

>Coolant:

>Power Steering Fluid:

>Rotate Tires:

That is all I have for now, what I am missing and what products do you guys recommend on those services??

Thanks in advance Guys and Gals of TW

Unless I'm blind, you left out the most important piece of information : YOUR MILEAGE

Follow the intervals recommended by Toyota - that's all you need.

If you have 4wd grease the zerk fittings. What about changing your cabin air filter.

The cabin air filter most people don't know exists but I change mine every few months and my 06 with 300k still smells good inside. Sounds anal but.. Everytime I change it there's a world of difference
