Interesting when I google that new transfer case (VF2CM) there’s a discussion on Tacoma World similar to ours about the T/C fluid. Some people on there reported shifting issues using alternative fluids. I’d take that with a grain of salt but thought I’d report it. There’s also pdf about developing a thinner fluid to improve efficiency.

I used mobil 1 so it is very clear which doesn't help obviously. I put in the full 6.6 Qt after draining everything. Do you have any advice on what I should do to get an accurate reading? Should I drain some of it out? Thank you!
I did the same thing with my 2005. Had to get underneath and drain off a quart or so.

Important thing is to change every 5000 miles with right stuff. I like conventional. Tried synthetic. Just a waste of money IMO. Conventional is better IMO. 10,000 / 20000 mile oil changes and you get mud in your crank case!

Your location, the Bahamas, should qualify as "severe service" or "special operating conditions" so, a shorter OCI is recommended. Perhaps you have had an oil analysis to help determine that 5000 miles is the limit under the conditions in which your vehicle operates? Short frequent trips? Slow stop and go traffic? Towing? Commercial use? Heavy vehicle load? High humidity? Salty air ... it all adds up to require frequent engine, transmission and gear oil changes.

Just for reference, it is not difficult to get an accurate oil reading, even on these smooth dipsticks.

1) warm engine
2) shut off engine
3) remove dipstick promptly
4) wait 5 mins
5) insert dipstick slowly
6) wait 10 seconds
7) remove dipstick slowly
8) read level

I’m sure there are other ways, but I get a perfect, consistent reading this way every time with no splotchiness or creep up the sides that makes it hard to read. All the oil in the dipstick housing drains back down during the 5 minute wait.

@DougR have you done a brake fluid flush yet? I like the look of the brake bleeder bottle you linked to.

No. I bought the bottle, but it's sitting in the cabinet in my garage, atm. I'm only a couple hundred miles away from 50k, so, I'm going to be experiencing quite a few new procedures here very shortly. After I hit 50k, I'll be doing a transmission flush, brake bleed, steering fluid flush and maybe an A/C refresh, depending on how productive I'm feeling.

I'm DougR ... YES, the brake bleeder bottle worked very well. I easily flushed all the brake fluid.
