toyota is one of the best, there have been tons of threads discussing the pro and cons, if someone wants to dig one up let them but just search for it and you will find it. To recap, some of the good ones are mobile1, napap gold, etc. People tend to stay away from fram just because of the construction (Cardboard) but then again people have used them forever without any issues

My truck also has a M1 filter on it right now. They're pretty expensive (around $11 I think..) Next oil change I'll probably look for a Wix as they're like half the price, and all I've heard are good things about them.

OEM, Wix or Napa Gold would be the only filters I would use.

They make some of the best filters there is. Everyone speaks so highly of the Napa Gold filters, those are made by Wix.

I don't think there is the need to buy TOP of the line MOBIL oil filter.
If you change them out every oil change per say 3k miles. The motor will be happy.
Also don't buy Fram oil filter. I've read a test somewhere way back in 04. They are the WORST filters made.
