, and diy cabin air filter.
The service from Toyota for Tacoma 1GRs do not get synthetic and only get conventional oil.
DIY requires a time investment, but you're getting higher quality stuff.
I did my 30k service awhile back and asked for a specific quote from Dublin Toyota; spark plugs, synthetic oil, oil filter, cabin air filter, air filter, and drain and fill front / rear diff's and TC w/ synthetic...
Quoted around 1200.00 ( yes 1200.00 usd...)
I found another local dealer to match online parts prices, and got everything (parts/seals/washers/filters) OEM for about 65.00.
I went to autozone
and got all the fluids I needed, and a pump for the TC drain/fill for 100.
Did it myself and performed more maintenance tasks than they quoted for about 1/8th of the price.
