Id go after some of the other typical maintenance items before redoing the timing belt service... youve likely a few in the front end... TBU... the rabbit hole is deep if you let it be

While I wouldnt go the oreilly route, those parts should last a while at least... 70k though???

I asked if they knew when the service had last been done, since I didn't see a sticker in the engine bay, and was told the car lot's mechanic had done it a couple weeks prior. I asked for a copy of the receipts and they handed me an O'Reilly's receipt for: Import Direct Water Pump, Gates PowerGrip Timing Belt, Murray Plus Straight Thermostat, some outlet seal and a copper seal. The date on the receipt was about a month before I bought the Runner and the part#'s on the receipt are listed for an '02 Runner.

Currently sitting at 268k miles, should I just do the service when normally scheduled at 270k (with OEM kit listed in previous posts) or trust that the currently installed parts will last another 70k miles??
Gates is okay for a timing belt, but they definitely cheaped out with the other parts. Doesn't sound like they replaced the timing belt tensioner or idler pulley either. I would do the timing belt/water pump/thermostat again, but after the rest of the maintenance is done.
