My truck has 112,xxx now and i have not yet replaced the timing belt. Toyota recommends replacing at 100,000 but I was told by a mechanic that I trust that it is OK to wait longer. Any thoughts on how long is safe before I should change it?

About 22,000 miles ago? It should have been changed at 90k. Although I've heard some people have gone 200k without changing it, I wouldn't risk it and would plan on having it done a.s.a.p.

I'm in the process of changing my timing belt on my 06 Tundra with 102k miles. Haynes manual recommended every 80-90k miles. My belt shows no signs of wear. Only changing it for preventative maintenance. I had a 97 avalon that went over 160k miles on one belt and it still looked good as well. :D
I'm not wanting to take chances on this good truck so I'm changing it.

I belt is probably still good but I bet your truck the water pump has started leaking. I would replace it. Why risk the cost of an engine for an easy repair.
