    I'm still not sure about the following intervals:
    Front diff
    Rear diff
    Transfer case
    Transmission

    Does toyota really mean to say that you never need to replace these fluids if you don't tow or haul??? Anybody else thought about this?

    The diffs and transfer case are super easy and cheap, so I did the first drain and fill at 25,000k, and will do every 30k thereafter since I don't tow or haul much. I will plan to do transmission drain and fill every 60k.

    Even if Toyota said that you never had to change fluid CHANGE IT! Manufacturers have to keep the posted yearly cost of maintenance low so they look good. It would be crazy to think your transmission fluid or diff never needs changed. Also you never see a recommended interval to change power steering fluid on any vehicle. I flush my diffs, transfer case and trans every 15k and coolant, power steering and brake fluid every 30k. my vehicles all last with minor repairs throughout their lifetime. I tow a 7500lb camper with my tundra so driveline flushes every 15k if you don't tow do them all every 30k with synthetic fluids, you wont regret it.

    Mine came with a maintenance manual and it says every 5000 miles. The dealership claimed to have done it every 5000 but when I did it I had to get behind each wheel with a wood block and a 5lb hammer to beat them loose.

    With the manuals now posted online, were you able to find the missing info? I couldn't locate anything.

    I've personally never retorqed the shaft. Any non-tower mechanics out here have input?

    I would say these aren't so much Toyota recommendations as tire manufacturer. I know where I work for any type of tire warranty the customers have to be able to present proof of recommended tire rotation intervals. Continental-5k, Michelin-7,5k, Pirelli-3k and so on.
