    I just hit 100,000 miles last weekend while hunting. It's a 95 3rz and I was wondering what I need to replace. I heard I should replace the timing chain. Do I need to? What about spark plugs or fuel filter? I know I need to replace the shocks and struts beacuse of the ride and not the age. Is there anything I need to be concerned about? Thanks for the help.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Break out the manual, it will be in there.

    Spark plugs should be changed every 20k-25k, fuel filter (everyone has own opinion) every 15k-20k...or every 25k is fine. Stand on the rear bumper, jump off and if the truck bounces up and down more than 2 times, than it's time to change. They say the shocks and struts should be changed every 50k-60k, but you can go a lot longer than that.

    I would also recommend you clean the MAF sensor, the throttle body. Run some seafoam fuel cleaner through too.

    Hope that helps.

    The manual that came with the truck is for the first series 1995 Toyota, not the Tacoma. Thanks for the help and suggestions.

    What does sea foam do? I was looking at the product and not sure what it does lol sorry I dont know anything about trucks.

    My 05 is almost at 100,000 has like 99,300. I bought it at 86,000 miles and it didnt come with a service manual. Not sure what I should do when I get to the 100,000 mile club lol it needs a oil change, and dunno what else i should be changing :confused:
