I'd go with whatever the manual recommends!.

Synthetic at this point and time may give you some "leak" issues.This is where synthetic has received some bad publicity....when folks put it in older engines.Some folks have experienced leaks when they switch their older vehicle to synthetic...this is due to years of using "dino" oil...the acidic "build-up" creates degradation of the gaskets.When synthetic oil is used ,the owner sometimes experiences oil leaks when they did not have them before.....the reason for this is because synthetic oil has better flow characteristics than dino oil...it is not more "slippery"...this is still oil,not an oil additive like slick-50 and the like.Stay with the dino oil and change it often.Folks also get into the mind set that since they are running synthetic,they can run longer than usual...this is not the case...these are still internal combustion engines....synthetics are actually used for EXTREME CONDITIONS,I know, someone will chime in and refute every word that has been typed....oh well.

100k for a Toyota truck engine isn't that much, actually. Just use whatever you've been using.

How are you spending 60$? I get my oil at wal mart for 24$ for 5 quarts and I order filters online, I got 3 toyota oem filters for like 18$.

The filler cap has some numbers on it that indicate the viscosity you should use. Any brand with the API-SM specification is fine: Castrol, Valvoline, Pennzoil... whavever your flavor. I used to insist on name brand oils but modern oils are all high-quality. So I will use whatever is on sale, including Peak (NAPA brand), O'Reilly brand oils, and Flag. They are totally fine because they have the API logo and the SM classification. The best kind of oil is the kind that's changed reguarly, that's most important. Never miss an oil change.
