    $17.00 oil changes for the the life of the truck. When I bought mine, I got a card that I present everytime for this price. IMO, if the dealer didn't ask if I wanted synthetic and they filled it with synthetic...they would eat the cost. I'd argue that's not what I asked for, please take it out and give me an oil change.....with oil.

    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    I was just over the local WalMart, once in a while they have good prices on syn oil. Castrol 5-30 was $20 for 5qts, Mobil 1 had jumped to $29 for 5qts. Unfortunatly new Taco's require 5.5 or so the need for a extra quart of buying another 5qts.
    Walmart has a habit of running out of stuff when you need it, as in the correct oil.
    I am going to change to syn and more than likely use Mobil 1 and the regular Taco oil filter, which is decent.
    I would love to find some place where I could get a good price on a case of Mobil 1 and I may try our local BJ's which is a warehouse outfit, similar to CostCo's, Sam's.
    I wonder why they jumped the price $9 for Mobil One. Anyone else see this price jump in there area?

    My manual says 5.5 or so for a new 2.7L but the dip stick says five. A little low is better than to much.
