    Current mileage is 29,193. Not gonna post a how-to since that has already been done and honestly there isn't anything to it but to look at what's there and do it. Credit to Toyota for designing it so that no serious interference has to be removed to get the plugs out. Alls I did was disconnect the air filter housing and lift out of the way on the passenger side, and a little hose whose clamp can be worked with your fingers on the drivers side.

    As a data point all my OEM plugs looked fine (usual Densos on passenger side, NGK on drivers) and the gaps had opened up to about .050. I replaced them with the NGK V-power copper (same as OEM) gapped at .044. Truck runs the same, which is a good thing. Job took about an hour.

    I dont remember what the manual calls for, but that seems a but early for a plug change.
