    New to the forum. Curious when y’all went about the timing belt and head gasket changes. How many miles and what is the best upgrade when time to do so?

    Welcome. My 2019 4R ORP is the 3rd Toyota I’ve owned (1985 Hilux 300,000+, 2003 Tacoma 4x4 still going with 250,000, and now the T4R). Never had to open the engine on any of them. Toyota uses internal timing chains rather than belts so they’re more reliable and last longer. Do the factory recommend services on schedule and you should be just fine.

    Dear Fellows, someone know if the rear diff of a 2008 4x2 sr5 4.0L is a limited slip or is a normal diff? the question is because I heard if I put a non LS type into a LS diff type this will broke my diff.
    Looking forward to hearing from you, also thank's in advance. (sorry for my english, is not my native language)
