2007 Tundra 5.7L with 60K miles. Tow an RV so transmission oil change is recommended.
We have two Toyota dealers in Tucson, AZ. One recommended a total transmission flush (at $349) while the other dealer said NO NO NO. Flush not recommended and would do a transmission pan drain and refill ($169).

With the mileage that your vehicle has, it is okay to go ahead and do the flush. The flush will do a better job of getting all the dirty fluid out. The reason the flush is not recommended as for higher-mileage vehicles. This can cause metal shavings from the transmission to clog up transmission orifices. This can cause a restriction and fluid flow and therefore cause a failure to the transmission. Since your vehicle has such low mileage and is unlikely that there is enough metal shavings in the transmission to cause this type of issue.
