    I believe the service interval after that first change is shorter, maybe 60,000 miles.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Either way, use the toyota brand stuff, it has all the right additives and it will match color wise. Light pink or dark pink.
    Check your water pump, while you're at it. Look for pink crust underneath. If present, the seal is leaking and the bearing will soon fail.
