    Weather Tech stone guards, Undercover SE bed cover, fresh coat of wax. I really miss my Indigo Ink Pearl 07' DC -RIP-she saved my life. Thank you blue beast!
    The old odometer shows 58,000 on my 2007 prerunner, getting close to the time to service the ATF.
    I plan on doing this service myself…I really don’t trust any of the stealerships in my area. I have Mobile 1 synthetic ATF in my Corvette and really like it. Has anyone here used Mobile 1 synthetic ATF in their Taco’s automatic Trans?

    Use only Toyota ATF-WS. It's a synthetic by most accounts and well worth it if you want it to shift correctly.

    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.
    Yep, I would say it's time for an oil change....ever since Toyota changed the interval to 60k from 100k.

    DON'T use the Mobile 1 or anything else besides the recommended ATF from Toyota. This oil in approved for and is safe for our transmissions, other brands of oil could do damage. You can pick it up at your local dealership.

    However Mobil 1 is great for engine oil and diff oil's, transfer case.

    Hope that helps.......

    No harm in changing the oil. I think it's horrible that Toyota doesn't recommend this until 100k miles and even worse that some dealerships are saying don't change it at all. Oil wears out over time. A little oil is much cheaper than a damaged transmission.
