Noob doing an oil change

so untill a couple months ago i had a 2001 f250 v10. but i have since upgraded to a 1997 tacoma 4 cylinder 2WD. not its time to do an oil change and i dont know what to put in it. i always did my own changes in my ford.

anyone have an idea about what kind and more importantly how much oil to put in the truck?

thanks for any help!

5w-30 and the 2wd takes 6.2 qts. Here's a good write up by Chris 4x4 on oil filters. Do what I did and buy a case on Amazon.
