    right on thanks. Taco just hit 70K and I am going on a long road trip in October. Its getting some loving soon. Luckily I am a technician at a Ford dealer and I have access to all the tools I need to do the job my self just needed to know the fluid type, Fords dont have cool things like locking rear diffs

    You said Locking Rear? If its a Limited slip youll need a conventional 80W90 oil with additive,synthetics dont work well in Limited Slips only in Locking Rears(TRD Offroad Package)no additive needed

    Yes I have the TRD Offroad Package with the locking rear diff

    I am at 70K miles I am going to be doing Spark Plugs, Rear Diff, cleaning my K&N air filter, oil change, and 4 tires within the next month. Cant think of any thing else it needs at the moment probably a throttle body service and fuel injector flush as well, I have access to all the BG flush equipment just gotta buy the chemicals

    Drain and refill Auto/Manual tranny while you got the drain pan out,clean the throttle body yourself with spray and rags,forget Fuel injector flush drop in some Fuel injector cleaner once in a while and good to go.

    Here is what my 70K mile cabin air filter looked like. And dont worry I took out the blower motor and cleaned out the AC case and put a new filter in
