    Is there a brand that you guys would recommend or prefer over others when changing belts?

    Inherited a 2003 SR5 V6 and need to change em.

    Or, just go cheapest and let buyer worry about it in 20k miles?

    Dayco, Gates, or OEM.
    I’d get a decent one. If you bought a used truck with “new belts” you’d expect the seller to put something decent.

    I’ve used Gatorback in the past but I want to say continental bought it out and now it’s the Elite. Either way good belts.

    Oem here 100k on 2 belts... never snapped or frayed.

    Actually the 1st belt went about 80k on its own.

    Dang. Might think about replacing it soon. Preventative maintenance :D

    I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t hurt anything to replace it
