I am having the crankcase and diffs. drained and replaced with Mobil synthetics; radiator flush and fill, and transmission drained and filled with nonsynthetic. Any idea what this might cost? Also, the toyota belts had to be ordered by the dealer, I would assume from previous threads that they are worth waiting for as opposed to getting aftermarket.?

thanks

Mobil-1 gear lube is ~US$7 per quart, and M1 motor oil is about $4/qt. Add it up and cha-ching!

Really strange that your dealer doesn't have the belts in stock. Even my worthless dealer has them, albeit at higher than list price :mad:. OEM belts are smooth and usually cheaper than aftermarket.

Jay,
The OEM belts are worth the wait. Pitch the old ones in the emergency spares box in case a belt breaks on the road.

Be sure to replace the transfer case fluid with synthetic gear oil. ATF in the tranny.
