    Greetings, I just bought a 2015 SR5 premium and have a couple questions.
    Is it possible to get a service manual for this vehicle?
    Are there any things to watch for when changing oil or is it very straight forward?
    Are the Weather Tech floor mats and cargo mats better than the rubber Toyota ones?

    Thanks for any help.

    Weather tech are hands down the best mats to get. Toyota ones are overpriced and not as good. There's a reason Toyota sells weather techs at their parts department.

    Check out the Haynes guide for a service manual.

    Oil changes on a 1GR-FE are the SIMPLEST oil changes you will ever do.

    Congrats on the new truck!

    Thank you for the response. Do I have a 1GR-FE? Is that the engine code?
    Owners manual says 0-20 oil, are you good with that weight?
    Are the OEM filters the ones to use or...?

    Do you have a 4.0L V6? (Yes)

    I use 5w-30 but I'm also a 2005 so they've refined the 1GR-FE since

    I go to Toyota. I have my oil change done for $25

    Welcome to the forum

    In recent years Toyota has switched over most (all?) their motors to a lighter weight oil so you're good with 0-20. For the older style 1GR, I use only the OEM filters mainly due to the larger size over other filters. They're pretty cheap too ($4-5 on most days at the dealer). No idea about your newer cartridge style filter, but if it were me I'd probably just go with OEM.
