    I have heard that the timing chain needs replaced at 100k, but was quoted at $800- $1100 to change it.

    First off, what are thoughts on this? What are side effects if I didnt replace it?

    What else should I look into replacing?

    Thanks for that. I was reading on how much the timing belt costs to replace. I'll wait til that breaks.
    I'm guessing this is in the service manual but is there one place to find a snapshot of all the grease zerks?

    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.
    If your truck is a 2x4 it will not have grease zerks.

    These trucks have a timing chain, no need to change at 100k.

    The only thing you need to change is the "Coolant". It has a special pink coolant that last 100k miles.

    100k-120k Timing chain/belt and water pump are normally the big services that need to be done.

    headhunter,
    FYI from a sticky above:
    Tacoma 1995-2008 4 Cylinder Chain
    1995-2004 V6 Belt
    2005-2008 V6 Chain

    Your info says you have a 05 so you have a chain therefore no belt to change.
    Don't go back to whoever quoted you a price to change your chain.:)
