    I have a 2005 crew cab 4X4 with 107,000 miles. How do I determine if I have a timing belt or chain? Also, the only maitenance I have had to preform is normal oil changes (syn oil and Toyota filter), front brakes, and tires. What do I need to do at this mileage to keep her going for 300,000 miles.

    Thanks in advance.

    For the other maintenance, when I hit 90K I went ahead and flushed the coolant, had a tranny flush done, and then took care of other things as I've had time. So if you haven't done so before now, here's a list of other things that you should change (and you shouldn't wait until 100K miles to do them):

    Brake Fluid
    Power Steering Fluid
    Front/Rear Differential Oil
    Transfer Case Oil

    05Moose, Thanks. I took the truck into Toyota for the Tran fluid change, they said it had a "Lifetime" fluid and did not recommend changing it. They said that there was two types out and that mine was the kind that did not recommend changing.

    I will get on the the other fluid changes this weekend. Thanks for the heads up.
