    I've called around from my local lube shop to the dealership and have gotten everything between $300 and $800.

    Buy the supplies and pay for my trip to boulder, I'll do the work for you. You'll still come in at about $500. You get the work done, I get a free trip!:D. I got buddies in broomfield so I got a place to crash...

    Or, do it yourself and save some money, and pick up some knowledge along the way.

    Even if you had to go buy a set of hand tools to get the job done...still cheaper to go that route. Plus, you get the bonus of the fact that you now have a set of tools and the knowledge to use them.

    I have the tools and the knowledge, just dealing with all the fluids is a PITA. Plus at some point I value my free time to do other things.

    I found a toyota specific garage that does it cheaper than jiffy lube, and jiffy does not even do sparks, or some of the other checks, only fluids.

    I could service my truck at 60k... The only problem is finding a place to service it because I still live with the rents unfortunately. At toyota though I get employee price on everything which is nice. I think a full 60k service was about 270.00.:)

    Stay away from Jiffy lube if I were you...

    You say you value your free time, as do I. Know what I value more than a few hours of play time? Peace of mind. Peace of mind knowing that the job was complete, thorough, and most of all, done correctly. And if something were to go wrong, I don't have to go looking for the ass wipe that messed up my rig...

    Disposal of fluids is as easy as a run to the local parts house for recycling...

    And I don't see any reason to wait until exactly 60k to do everything. Especially if money is tight, just start doing this a few thousand miles in advance...that way you can get one item crossed off the list at a time, and by 60k you will have everything done. You don't have to spend hundreds in one shot...instead spend 30-50 bucks after each paycheck to take care of one thing.

    Did it myself for ~$100 in supplies. I may have done more than what the service calls for, but that's what it cost me for what I did, with the help of a friend. And I did it like Andrewfalk mentioned, here and there, constantly doing some maintenance when I had the time. Lubing the drive shaft prematurely can only be a good thing.

    I did mine myself called 2 local dealers one was $800.00 and the other was $300.00 plus and additional $180.00 for front and rear axle and the diff. Both were changing the radiator fluid, power steering and brake fluids. And a whole shit load of checks. Did the plugs and all the gear lube with synthetic plus a synthetic oil change and blew out the in cabin filter ( forgot to get the washable one from lowes to cut to size. And a 710 CCA battery all for $230.00. I am happy I did need to buy a jar of vaseline for the dealer to use on me.

    Wow nice truck Mjonags32.

    Like to see that most people are doing their own.

    Well you see on the 60k service you have to rotate your pistons 180 degrees to seat the.. whatever..
    its an oil change.

    anyone have any write ups or stickys on changing out the transfer case, front diff and transmission oils?

    thanks...
