30k Maintenance requirements?

I'm coming up to 30k on my truck and after reading the forums I was a little confused as to what fluids I need to change. I have a 2010 4 cyl manual prerunner.
Looking at the book it looks like the only things I need to do is the standard oil / air filter change, is this correct? Do I ever have to change out any other fluids? The only variation from this that I can see that applies to my truck is at 120k I need to change out the spark plugs.

Just want to make sure there is not anything else I should do to maintain the truck.

Nope, you sure don't. Do the rear diff and cabin filter, spark plugs, aaaand I think that's the biggies.

How often should I replace the rear diff oil, I don't see it in the book. Is there some type of synthetic I can replace it with and then forget about it for awhile?

My 2010 maintenance guide (page 41) shows "replace rear differential oil ( prerunner & 4WD vehicles with optional limited slip differential only)." This is following the normal use schedule.

I have a 2010 Prerunner with Limited Slip Differential.

As part of maintaining my warranty I had to have the rear diff oil changed at 30,000.

Who told you that?? You don't have a mechanical limited slip differential unless you swapped it in yourself. You have an open differential and the manual never says when to change it, just says inspect. I held out until 40k miles with my differentials and transfer case fluids.

Pugga - The stealership told me I had to.

First they told me I had a mechanical limited slip differential. I said it was an auto, then they agreed. Still said the fluid change and flush was required to maintain original factory warranty.

It cost me $154.12.
