    Yea, try another shop for sure it is all basic maintenance. Or you could do yourself it will be like 200 bucks for all the parts.

    DIY..

    Mobil 1 syn Oil & OEM filter
    Front, rear Diff & T-case Mobil 1 75W90
    New spark plugs, there is a heavy debate but NGK are fine with a .038 - .043 gap (someone correct me if I am wrong)
    New in cabin filter, check engine filter.. replace if necessary.
    Trans flush - optional?
    Coolant flush (I would personally do it at 60k intervals)
    rotate tires, check psi in all 4
    lube everything with a zerk, drive shaft, UCAs (aftermarket), LCAs (also aftermarket)

    maybe forgetting something, but I also do it in an excel spreadsheet so I don't forget .. lol

    $500 and you have a Prerunner?!?! Damn, those stealerships have no soul!

    For a 4x4, you'll spend $100 just in oils to do the front, rear and transfer case fluid changes but with a pre-runner, you only have to do the rear end ($30 for high quality gear oil). The only other things you'd need to do is spark plugs (about $40 for parts), engine oil and filter ($30-40 depending on which oil you like), tire rotation (DIY free), air filter ($20) and cabin air filter ($10). So about $150 in parts if you do it all yourself.
