    Vehicle:
    '99 Tacoma Limited 3.4L V6 5-Speed
    Ghetto ass 2" spacer lift. Black grill and bumpers. Too tiny 31's.
    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.
