    Just completed this and included MAF, throttle body, plugs, air and cabin filter, driveline lube and torque, transfer case, and both difs. It feels good to do this myself and save the cash. I appreciate the knowledge gained via TW and this thread. The only thing I found hard was the left drivers side plug. Getting the wire off was difficult.

    1. Can't help you with this - no pics...but someone should come along shortly...
    2. Differential - yes; Trans every 60K - since you did that at 40K, do that again at 100K
    3. IIRC, the radiator is to be done at 100K unless it has issues.

    Why are you upgrading the rear shoes? The stock one work great and don't need replacing until well over 100K...

    There are two on the front drive shaft. One at the front of the shaft and one at the rear. You may need to remove the little heat shield to get to the rear zerk. There are three more on the rear drive shaft. One at the front, one at the middle, and one at the end of the shaft. Move the truck forward or reverse to set them at an easy angle to get to them with the grease gun.

    The driveshaft on my 2008 DCSB doesn't have zerk fittings...
    Any ideas?
    Possibly the driveshaft was replaced?

    None. Up to now. Probably considering doing some light modifications to increase hp. No idea how to get there.
    Hi to all! I am not usually posting threads in any forum. However, need to say that the last time I did (selling full set of new Bilstein Shocks it worked- sold the parts-everyone happy). This one is different given the fact we are talking about PM. My truck is a 2006 2WD Pre runner (75,000 miles) and I'm wondering if I should do any transmission oil change - vehicle book calls for inspection at 45k (from the top of my head - I don't have the book with me) on the street - friends tell me I should go ahead and replace the oil. I am not in favor of doing any change - my truck is a light duty one - just traveling at an ave. of 9k miles/year (no dirt roads, no trailing, etc). Hope to hear some good advice from knowledgeable source. On the other items - checking diff. grease I have not checked either - this one I will be doing this w/e. Best to all!

    All oils break down over time. Will your truck explode if you don't change it? Probably not, but replacing fluids is very rarely a bad thing.

    Just did rear/front diff and t-case yesterday. I'd suggest buying 7 quarts. I had to run out and buy an extra last minute by the time I got to the front. The rear took more than I thought it would.

    I recently hit 100k miles on my Tacoma. Recently I did the following....
    • Front/rear diff, and transfer case fluids.
    • Engine oil and filter.
    • Sparkplugs.
    In addition to those, I did the transmission fluid about 30k miles ago so I should be good there. I had a failing rear u-joint replaced under warranty (extended warranty) and I did my pads and rotors. My shocks were replaced at 50k miles when I installed my lift so they are fairly new too.

    So I guess my question is....what else do I need to service? I feel like 100k miles is a milestone but there isn't much for me to do. I almost feel like I'm forgetting something big. Anything else I should inspect that typically goes wrong around that time?

    Never waste your money past warranty to dealer maintain your vehicle. It has never been worth it for me or just about anyone I know. Even for my dad who has had some issues repaired on his Porsche.
    For the work you don't want to do yourself get a trusted relationship going with a local mechanic.

    Toyota Dealer wanted to rip my Mom off $2,000 for a 175K check up, which just included fluid changes.

    Thanks for consolidating a maintinence schedule. Makes things quite handy!

    You are due for a timing belt around 90K. Shop around for a quote before doing it. I've been quoted anywhere from $500 to $750. I personally think if you want to keep the vehicle for another 100K do the belt change within a year or so. If not then you can let it go.

    Speaking of which has anyone here replaced a timing belt with a timing chain to avoid future replacement costs?
