    I have a 2009 TRD 4x4 DC V6 and was wondering how often you change your front/rear/transfer case fluids? I have already had it done once at my 10K mile oil change..just about to hit 30K miles...been running Mobil Synthetic since day one...was wondering if it was worth also upgrading those other fluids as well or stick with Toyota brand? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.:)
