    The dealer wanted like $400 bucks to do the 50k mile service on my truck. What does that service entail? I'm sure whatever it is, I can do it for a heck of a lot cheaper.

    You can... was your 30 k service done for Plugs, differential fluid, etc? major intervals are 30k 60k and 90k...not sure what they were doing at 50K unless the 30k was not done.

    ok.. Then your looking at Differential fluids front & rear, transfer case & spark plugs. plus a oil change.

    You can do all this for about $60.00 yourself. There are a bunch of DIY threads here that show you step by step. Its pretty simple too.

    Unless your a pre-runner, then it might be just rear diff and plugs.

    You can't even buy the oils and filter for $60... You can do it for cheaper than $400 but not $60. You're looking at close to $100 in oils and filters if you're doing both diffs, transfer case and an oil change. All are very simple procedures and you could have it all done in 1/2 a day if you take your time (can be as quick as an hour if you really hustle). Plugs are easy to change but take a few minutes. Also check your air filter (maybe change it out) and your cabin air filter depending on when it was last changed.

    At 50k you might consider a transmission fluid although intervals are up for debate. I plan to change mine at 60k.

    I've done regular oil changes since I've had the truck so that is good, but one is rearing its head so I can do that too. I've read up on the differential fluid thread and that looks pretty easy. I haven't seen the transfer case but I'll check that out..thanks for the info man

    edit: I do have 4wd so I do have a front diff

    Done mine for 60.00. Advance Auto continually has coupons if you spend 100.00 get 40.00 off etc. Plugs, get right from the dealer, I cant remember how much, but they were cheaper than the auto stores.

    I gotta get ahold of those coupons :eek: I spent $95 on fluids and filters last time I did mine. Even more expensive now cause I switched to synthetic for the engine... Plugs from the dealer were $7/ea I believe (way overpriced but I know they'll work). You can get plugs elsewhere cheaper.

    Here is one post I started about deals..

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/155357-mobil-1-synthetic-special.html

    Heres another..

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/deals-coupons/163621-40-off-advance-auto-parts.html

    Spark Plugs, I paid 3.00 each. Here Chris paid 3.25 each from his dealer. 7.00 was way too much. But I guess i now see everything cost you over a 100.00.

    Search is your friend before you purchase.

    Just set up account at advanced auto, you will get them emailed. I try to give TW users codes from time to time. Next time I get I will shoot you one.

    PS. I used synthetic in my differentials and transfer case too.
