    My wife and i both own 05' Tacomas. the only difference is i have a bilsteins all around with a manual trans. And she has a double cab that is bone stock.

    They are both just over the 50K mile range, and i am wanting to change air filters, spark plugs and check the all the gear cases and trans fluids.

    Is there anything else that needs checked or replaced on this pickups after 50k ??? and where can i find a good air filter that is better than stock. Also are Denso's the way to go for plugs??

    thanks

    Shouldn't have to do the plugs until at or after 100k, whatever the manual states. 50k on 05's... light driving :D
