    Hit 50k about 115 miles back. I've only had the truck since May, 2009 so It's only been through the 45k tune up which I had Toyota of Seattle do.
    I recently moved out of the city and into a duplex style house with a (uneven) driveway so I have the option to do simple tune ups at home e.g. oil and filter changes.

    The short end of the long is this: What can I do at home with no jacks/jack stands, or socket sets?

    You guys are awesome and thanks in advance for any help

    Eric

    Yea, the majority of any of the bolts you'd ever want to loosen or tighten on the truck are 10, 12 or 14mm.

    You can do a ton in your driveway with basic tools. Oil change, diff fluids, transfer case oil, ATF drain/refill, spark plugs, serpentine belt, brakes, full 3" OME lift and on and on.

    Look through the DIY's, they usually tell you what tools you need. Take a trip to Sears and buy the basics.

    You're local, buy me some beer and I'll come over and give you a hand.
