Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) - Gasoline Cars/Pickups/Vans/SUVs
Like you said Hokiefyd, we don't really know what goes into making an oil Dexos approved other than Noack/VII and a fee. But i speculate there are other benchmarks that need to be met.

Neither Toyota Red or Toyota Pink are DEX-COOL. They are specific formulations and also different from each other. Toyota Red is for 1994 and older Toyotas and Toyota Pink is for 1995 and newer Toyotas. Toyota Red shouldn't be used in 1995 and newer

Your '07 FJ Cruiser has been back spec'd for a 5W-20 grade. And since you're not adverse to using expensive oils I'd recommend Amsoil OE 0W-20 for both. It is heavier than an OEM 5W-20 but not as heavy as their OE 5W-20.

I've used it a few times and it's my favorite oil,runs VERY a smooth,especially at wot. I'd use it exclusively if Walmart sold it in five quart jugs. I just will never pay $10 a quart for motor oil.

This is an amazingly good result for a single piston soak. You were lucky the rings were not worn out by then, like it usually is in Saturns, so piston soaks have low success rate. What oil is specified by honda in this truck? How do you drive it?

My vintage VW uses rear disc with the caliper doing parking brake too. Corrosion is its downfall; seems like 100-150k is the best it can do (3-5 years?) before these $100 calipers need replacement. OTOH I've never needed to adjust the parking brake
