Let me know if you don't have one.
We have the same truck out in our shop and I can look at our owners manual for it.
I would use what they recommend at Toyota, even if they cost more.
For my Toyota Camry they called for some special plugs too.
Cost for the plugs they recommended was approx. $10.00 each at Autozone, Kragen, etc.
I looked at the $2.00 - $3.00 spark plugs the auto store had on sale and just decided to do it right the first time and spend a few extra bucks upfront.
I probably spent about $ 30.00 bucks more, but won't have to worry about anything for a long time.

NGK and Denso Platinum are good too, but the cost difference is small enough I just buy the iridiums out of habit I guess.

Changing the new plugs is not like the old plugs. How long have they been in the motor? Goss's Garage on Motorweek recommends loosening the old plugs then starting the motor for a minute or two, to loosen the carbon on the ends. Then take the plugs out if it gets hard to turn taking out turn the plug back in then back out. You do not want to mess up the threads on an aluminum head. Watch the video here.. Start the plugs by hand and tighten finger tight. Use a torque wrench to finish. DO NOT forget to put lube on the new plugs
Thanks for the info. That came in handy. The old plugs came out no problem and of course hand tighten all the way down than torque. I found 13 fps to be the factory amount.
Interesting a couple of the old plugs were just hand tight. I will drive it some around here than recheck torque.
Thanks again for the info.
