    Welcome to TW, that 2.7L in your truck is a bullet proof motor man. I had a 98 Tacoma and put 190k on it and it was still running perfect the day I traded it in.

    Thanks, and glad to hear that. is the 2.7 a timing chain motor? I hope to put another 100k on this truck if it will do it.

    Its a chain, the only thing I replaced on mine was the starter at about 130k ish. Other than normal maintenance oh and I still had the original back brakes on it @ 190 k.

    cool, yeah the starter is less than 5k miles new, as is the muffler.

    so..i wanna do a full service... all fluids...etc..

    do ya know what types and weights of oils I need to use for the front diff, rear diff, transmission and transfer case? I assume the suggested 5w30 oil Toyota says to use for the engine is good enough, but i havent the slightest clue about the other stuff. Im totally new to this...this is my first 4wd anything.
