Ha! Yeah, I remember that. I actually test drove one and it was the most gutless thing I had ever driven. I ended up getting a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which wasn't gutless, but was a POS that i traded in 3 years later due to electrical problems and the dealer's handling of the warranty had my wife seething. Ended up getting a T4R SR5 and haven't looked back.

0w-20, I'll only use Toyota Genuine Oil (Full Synthetic). You can use any full synthetic 0w-20 though. I don't get into the nitty gritty of it. Mostly because I don't know. Maybe that's truly why I just get Toyota brand and 0w-20. It's made for my 4runner and I don't have to think about it. Makes sense to me, at least in this case.

However, Mobil makes Toyota brand oil. So it really doesn't make too much sense to not be able to use 0w-20 Mobil 1 Full Synthetic. Toyota would say because it doesn't have their additive to it that helps protect the engine and fuel economy. Idk, I wanna say bologna but maybe there's something to that.

I had to get used to changing oil every 10k miles though. I guess I'm just too paranoid. I've gone 9k since last change and everything appears normal and functioning. But I don't know what's going on in at engine "behind the scenes". I just have to hope it's ok and I check weekly for leaks. No leaks to be found. I suppose I could check the oil level but that's probably ok.

The dealership changes for free right now at 10k miles, but I don't think I would mind paying for it in between just for a peace of mind.

Yep. I was thinking about the 2010. I was looking at a few different T4Rs before I ended up with the '14 Limited.

I was also considering a Land Cruiser, Land Rover, GX460, or Grand Cherokee. Thank God I ended up with what I did. I love it.

Manual clearly states you can run the following viscosity's:

0w20
5w20
5w30
10w30

My personnel favorites are Amsoil and QSUD! Valvoline synthetic blend High mileage for older engines.

Thanks. When I got the Dobinsons, I upgraded the springs for heavier weight. If you don't replace your springs, it will sag. It's pretty darn heavy.

Could be both. He could specify where it is written.
