Is there an full inspection guide for 4Runner?

Guys, I have 2010 4runner limited. Thanks to all my friends here I stop hopping by dealers since 2015 and did all required maintenance myself. My T4R is so far running well.

Now I'm planning my first road trip since the pandemic. I will put about 5000km on my T4R for this trip. I am wondering if there is a full inspection checklist or tech guide that can walk me through everything so I can be on the road confidently.

In the past I have used the certified pre-owned inspection checklist for pre-trip prep
