    So I just completed a nice 1740 mile (870 mi each way) road trip down to Siesta Key, Florida last week for our 1 year anniversary in my 06 DC Prerunner OR. Before the trip I conducted a normal PMCS of my truck to ensure all fluids were good to go and tires were aired properly, cleaned the air filter (K&N) and the throttle body, and also gave it a fresh oil change. Now that the trip is complete, I plan to rotate the tires (soon as I find some new lug nuts) change the oil, transmission flush, and a rear diff flush. Is there any other maintenance I should do besides cleaning out all the gummy bears my wife dropped in the truck, and clean her toe prints off the windshield, and getting out all the sand?

    Side Note before you start asking why:

    The Tranny flush, and rear diff flush is part of the 60,000 mile maintenance that I have needed to do anyway.

    Thanks, Casey

    Toe prints on the windshield! Sounds like it was a good time then.

    1740 miles on the oil, I would go a bit further before changing.

    Plugs are pretty cheap I would go them too.

    This. You're just throwing money and oil down the drain if you change the oil again already.
