coolant change miles vs years question

Ok what do you guys think I have a 2004 Tacoma 2.4l engine with 21k miles. Toyota has been so kind as to put 100k coolant into it from the factory. I am not going to go with the 100k mile change schedule but maybe 30k.
So I guess my question is mileage or time on something like this. 4 years same coolant. The coolant looks brand new still but I know looks are not a good guage.

I'll vote for age, not miles. I would say the 100,000 mile thing from Toyota is based on 5 or 6 years of 15,000 to 20,000 miles per year.
