    Nothing special.... just make sure you can loosen the FILL plug FIRST before letting all the oil out of the drain plug.

    I owned a 96 tacoma several years back and I used MObile 1 75w-90 in my diffs.

    You will need an allen head size ten. And for the rest of the plugs you will need a 24mm 6 point socket. There are little gaskets you can buy from the dealer for about 1$ replace them along with each bolt.

    what they said.....and one of those small hand pumps that go into the bottle work great for adding the fluid.
