    It's the first picture. For the tow package, the thermostatic valve needs to be locked in the open position to get a proper read on the fluid level.

    Did you replace the gaskets on the manual transmission? Any idea what the part number(s) are? Thanks!

    I changed my manual transmission, rear differential, and transfer case oil. Also greased the drive shaft on my 2016 off road. It took a good bit of grease, so was likely under greased from factory. I immediately noticed a big difference in ease of shifting, especially into first and from first to second, as well as into reverse. I didn't notice any rev hang. My differential and transmission oil looked like glitter, but all where filled properly from factory. Still have a slight howling noise in the differential from 50-60 mph when light on the throttle in 5th or 6th gear.

    **Edit**

    About 50 miles later, there is no noticeable difference from before changing the fluids. Really interesting that it had a significant immediate impact, but it diminished the more it was driven. Possibly because there is a lot of wear going on and the fluid is dirty already with metal shavings? I am at 2,600 miles by the way.

    Thanks Rodney! Guess I'll order a set of Bosch Icon's on Amazon..

    ***UPDATE***

    Just took a yard stick out and measured. 22" Driver side - 20" Passenger side.
    The Bosch web site is correct.

    Has anyone changed their diff fluid on an off road with the locker? Just curious to see how black it is or if any glitter came out. Im at 12800 now and thinking about doing my rear diff today

    Never bad to change oil, i change transmission and diff oil every year just because. It should be clean but you'll have some metal in it just due to being brand new. Anything more than super fine material is not normal. Make sure you use a synthetic fluid.

    My truck only has 4500 miles but i have decided to go ahead (for peace of mind) and change my oil/filter and maybe change my rear diff gear oil ( not decided yet ) i purchased the 0w-20 toyota oil at my local dealership and purchased Mobil1 75w-90 gear lube at Pep Boys for $8.84/qt with their 25% off online order special.
    ... anyone change their rear diff lube this soon or should i just wait till 10k-15k before doing that? I at least want to take out fill bolt and check it to make sure its full .. should it be right below fill hole when full?
    Thanks for any suggestions

    Baja Kit with JBA UCA's 1/2 inch spacer up top, Deaver 3 leaf with overload and super bumps all around. 33's with spidertrax 1.25 wheel spacers. Pro skid powder coated black with Pelfreybilt aluminum mid skid and aluminum gas tank skid.
    That's about when I changed my oil. I changed both diffs around 2000 miles with Mobil 1 full synthetic. It's more of a piece of mind thing for me. I haven't done the t-case yet but want to. I've always changed my diffs once a year but I wheel and some times go thru water. If the water is deep I will usually change it a few days after I go thru it. It's a piece of mind and I don't mind doing it. I say if your thinking about it and already have everything just do it and you will know it's done. Just keep an eye on what comes out to make sure there is no chunks. It will probably be glittery which is normal.

    My first engine and filter change was at 1000 miles. I'll do the diffs and transfer case at 5k with my next oil change. Engine oil will be done every 5k miles, diffs every year or every 10k, same for the transfer case.

    Changed front and rear diffs as well as transfer case with mobil1 75w90 today. Im at 12800 miles. The front diff was a bitch to work around mostly because a skid plate needed to be removed but other than that it was easier than doing an engine oil change. Now there is no doubt in my mind that the toyota color option "magnetic grey metallic " was inspired by the crap you find on the magnet. I could've used it as touch up paint it matched so well
