    So here's my list for 60k, let me know if you think its too much or Im missing something.

    Do it myself:
    Oil change
    Spark plugs
    Air and Cabin Air Filters
    Limited Slip/Rear Diff change

    Dealer:
    Auto Transmission drain and refill
    Engine Coolant drain and refill
    Visual inspection (I will also do my own)

    Missing anything? I know the manual says 100k on the tranny and engine fluids, but firm believer of doing it a bit early to for go problems down the road.

    If you are gonna do the tranny, do it w/a facility that has a machine to replace all the fluid. ie...a tranny flush.

    A drain and refill from the pan, does not get the old fluid out of the torque converter.

    Having been a Generous Motors owner for the last 35 years, I was in the habit of flushing the tranny and changing the death cool in the radiator every 2 years or 50K...but I beat those trucks hard, my Tacoma is more of a daily driver.

    Been scouring threads on here in regards to the tranny fluid change, apparently as confirmed by a couple mechanics at AMCO tranny that flushing is actually a bad idea and to just drain and refill, especailly since the most I do is carry a few dirt bikes in the back. But they could be wrong, but for now Im just gonna do the drop and fill.
