    I am approaching 1k miles on my 2016 CM Tundra SR5 with the 5.7. Recommended maintenance does not include any sort of oil change for awhile, but it still feels like I should do it before Toyota says I need to. Any opinion on changing it at 1k miles (or another interval) and/or did you take it to the dealer to have it done?

    I'd change the gear oil in your differentials. That stuff gets full of particles and breaks down faster during the initial break-in of the ring and pinion. As far as the engine is concerned I'd let it go for a while longer.

    Here's my take on this. Toyota offers 2 years complimentary service. The drive train warranty goes for a lot longer than the 2 years. Take advantage of the 2 year complimentary service. Then do the service as you see fit, as long as it falls within the Toyota recommendations, All will be good. As for me I am living by this and will do my 5k filter change, 10k oil change with Amsoil, when the 2 years are up. All other fluids etc. I will change as necessary or when recommend by the manufacturer.

    Good take, thanks. Sorta what I was thinking, just needed someone to validate it.
