    I have a 2010 4cyl 4x4 Tacoma sr5 with manual transmission, and am looking to change my fluids. I would like to get some eyes on this summary to make sure I am not missing anything.

    1. Transmission - 2 quarts (going with mt-90)
    2. Front Differential - 1.6 quart 75w-90 (going to use whatever synthetic I can get at the auto parts shop for the front, rear, and xfer case unless there is a reason to go with a specific brand)
    3. Rear Differential - 3 quarts 75w-90 (I don't see a LSD sticker, is there any chance I have a LSD?)
    4. Transfer case - 1.1 quarts 75w-90
    I have read a ton of the posts on this but was just looking for a summary to take care of everything in one shot. Let me know if I am missing anything.

    I got these from the 2010 manual.
    You can get a copy free from the Toyota website.

    Along with a well fitting 10mm Allen socket.
    Remember to remove the fill plugs FIRST.
    May luck be with you.

    Geez, that is a good idea. Should I hit up the dealer for that, or can you point me to a site?

    My dealer was very reasonable, and had all of them in stock.
