    Hey guys... I have been a member for a while, but never had anything to contribute - Until now! I have a 2005 TRD Sport (my 3rd Tacoma) which just hit 60k. Went to the Stealer for the major service point. Long story short he wanted $900 to change plugs, front/rear diffs and transfer case fluids (standard plugs and dino fluids). I read some posts here and purchased iridium plugs, Mobil1 75-90 for front and transfer and Lucas 80-90 & LSD oil for rear. Total cost $200 - includes torque wrench! I cannot Thank all of you enough for a great big hand in these tough economic times!!!!! Keep up the good posts.......:)

    Welcome, I am currently in Warwick but we are moving to Cumberland within a month or so.
    I did all my fluid changes and plugs for about $80, but used denso oil for the cases and factory plugs.

    Thought I would revive this thread vs. starting a new one. I may be relocating to RI and I just thought I would see if there was anyone on here from up there that could tell me what it is like. Also, are there places to OR and ride dirt bikes?

    RI weather is (last week a prime example) monday tuesday shorts (70 degrees) and then friday was 45 degrees. its a small state (about the size of one MA county) as for as OR and dirt bike idk. but the summers here are awesome andd you really truly have 4 seasons. idk i could ramble on and on.
