    I have 56k miles on my 2016 4runner. How often should I get the 4x4 system flushed? No off roading or towing, just the 4 seasons in Michigan. Thank you all.

    You mean draining and filling the differential fluid?

    Do it yourself, it's easier than changing your oil.

    The change intervals to change your diff and transfer case fluids is in your owners manual. I changed mine every 30K or sooner in the diffs if I encounter a lot of water. Reminds me I need to get the diff breathers moved up higher.
