    Did you just start another motor oil thread on purpose?!

    Someone must've broken the search again!

    Look for the search button and read up on where the oil pan drain plug is versus the tranny. You'll thank me later.:D (or you'll be offended now:p)

    Toytec also sells blocks and spacer lifts... Nothing against Toytec, they're actually great to deal with but just because they sell it doesn't mean you should put it on your truck. :rolleyes:

    I'll take real world experience over marketing any day.

    Don't use Fram, they are among the worst filters you can buy... Sure the grippy crap on the top of the filter is nice, they have flashy labels a lots of akronyms in the name but they suck at actually filtering the oil. Toyota filters are damn good and cost about the same.

    Amsoil. Royal purple is about $12/qt, Amsoil only $7.25/qt, 12 months or 24000 miles, change the oil once a year. The Amsoil gear oil is 10 years/100,000 miles. Good stuff. Racers love it. Plenty of Amsoil dealers where you live.
