    Hey everyone, just recently bought my new 2016 tundra (love it more than the Tacoma). I still have the 2 years of Toyota care left and plan on attempting to do maintenance myself after. I can do the basics, but would need guidance for anything advanced.

    My question is, I would like to buy a 3 days pass from the Technical Information System website, are the manuals good enough with detail and could i download a lot of the stuff within the 3 days?

    Probably yes. But for an oil change I'd just watch youtube

    This forum is likely the best manual you're ever going to come across. If you do any electrical mods at all you're going to want to pick up a hard-copy wiring manual (they're available on eBay). I've found TIS difficult to navigate, but you can find what you are looking for if you are persistent.

    One of the first mods to consider when you start doing your own maintenance is a TRD front skid plate. It has an oil-change hatch, so you don't have to remove the entire skid plate just to change the oil.

    I agree about the amount of knowledge on this site. I was just thinking if i had to take something about and put it back together and forgot a step or something. Plus all the torque specs for everything.
