    Hi guys I just bought a 2003 Tacoma Db trd with 60k miles a couple of month ago. I took it to the dealership to get a oil change when I pick it up they recommend me to change the timing belt they said eveb thought my truck has 60k the belt is almost 9 yrs old. What do you think? Should I change it or wait? I know it need to be replace at 90k. Let me know what you think?

    I maybe wrong but I think its 90k miles or 8/9 years which ever comes first. I'm probably wrong on the years but I think its something like that.

    sounds good I would get it replace then SHOULD the water pump be replace as well? BTW the truck is in cherry condition when the tech inspected he said it looks like they really took care of it.
