What's Everyone Running?

If this is the wrong place to post please forgive me:

I just picked up a 2014 Dbl Cab TRD OFF Road v6. Coming up on 1500 miles and am contemplating doing the services myself. Im pretty handy and my father who lives 2 miles down the road was a toyota tech back in the day when toyota's were the AIDS of the motoring community....

Long story short, I know a lot of are very aware of the shitty winters we have in new england. I'm trying to decide what oil and what weight to run in the truck when the time comes. I had a 2005 4 Runner that i ran mobil 1 5w-30 in forever and the truck was great. I don't always have the luxury of parking inside when its 20 below because we all park outside at the firehouse when we're at work.

Just looking for recommendations and tips or anything along those lines for oil and or weights that you guys and gals have used.

Thanks for any and all help!

Joe

run what ever is in the manual and change it regularly.
an untuned v6 doesn't need special snakeoil

Team Curtis...you sound like my father! Thanks for confirming that....he's always had the right ideas. Is anyone seeing any benefit to using synthetic?

If you were running a high compression engine, or something that spun really fast all the time, or even just an aggressive cam, yes I think a full synthetic would make sense.
In my ducati I run a full syn, in my 64 el camino 383 stroker I use synthetic,
in my stock pick up? nice clean traditional oil
