Toyota recommends a transmission fluid flush at 6 yr / 60,000 mi if you do a
lot of towing. For "normal" usage, the fluid is to be checked every 30,000
mi and replaced if there are signs of degradation (varnished, burnt,
discoloration, etc.) See:

That said, the fluid is the lifeblood of the transmission, so changing it
more often can be beneficial if you intend to keep the 4Runner for 10+ years
until it falls apart due to rusting. :-) I flush mine once a year.
