According to the schedule in the owners manual:

Change at 60K unless for any of the following: police, taxi, fleet, or frequent trailer towing. Change at 30K.

I'm at 30 and it's on my to do list in the near future. but it looks a bugger to get to. There's some torque bushing or God idk bolted to the back that covers your access to the drain plugs. And I have to remove skid plates which is pretty minimal but the big metal who knows what bolted to the back has me wondering the best way for a person to do said fluid change

That's a vibration dampener held on with 4 torx head bolts I believe. Nothing else connects to it.

There enough room between the Def tank and that to get a torque socket and ratchet in to take off? If I recall it looked pretty close

There's not enough room for the ratchet, but the base of the torx bit within the socket is usually hex shaped and can be turned with a wrench.

Yeah I got it I just wasn't sure how much screwing around with not quite enough room or not quite right tools the job would entail. But it works.

Thanks for the Info @John

Yeah thats why I asked cause none of my sockets well fit in there. I'll mess with it again when I do my fuel filter at 20k
