Front/rear diff and transfer case plug sizes?

This must be some national security top secret information because I can't find it anywhere, not in my Chilton's, Google, other forums or here. Does anyone happen to know the fill/drain plug sizes for front/rear differential and transfer case on a 1995 4Runner, 4x4, 3.0 auto? Also the wheel hub nut size? Was told 54mm in a previous thread but need to confirm before buying a socket.

thanks in advance!

That's why sockets come in sets.

I don't think you're going to find reliable "published" information for something that's so easy to measure yourself. And so easy for the manufacturer to change mid-production.

So do that. Get one of these. https://www.harborfreight.com/6-in-d...per-61585.html You'll use it all the time.

54 mm is the size of the nuts for the front hub

24mm is the normal drain plug size
however you will find some as low as 14mm

Which is why I asked here rather than buying entire set/s for 2 sockets ranging from 14mm to 54mm. Fortunately someone else had the answer.

Then you might find Allen Head plugs .

The thing with these trucks is you never know what your going to find unless you owned it from new .

Changing the first time Go to or Oder all new plugs from Toyota

Always remove the fill plug before draining I bet most of us have stories
