    '96 Tacoma DLX 3.4L V6 Ext. Cab 5-Speed
    K&N Cold Air Intake, Blacked out grill, front and rear bumper, clear corners, and custom tails.
    So I have a '96 Tacoma Ex. Cab V6 5-Speed with 181,XXX miles on it, I recently just replaced the oil in my rear differential, front differential, transfer case, and transmission. I also lubed my driveshaft, changed my spark plugs, and cleaned my throttle body and MAF sensor.
    I was wondering what other preventative maintenance I should do? I want to do my timing belt next, but what else should be replaced or done while doing that?
    I love this truck, it's lasted 15 years, I want it to go another 15.
    Thank you for your help.
    - Josh

    Change the water pump and the idler pulleys while doing the timing belt since it is all easy to access at that point.
