    The only benefit in switching from 5w30 to 0w30 would be easier starting in freezing cold temperatures. Once your truck is up to operating temp, the oil will be at 30w. Basically the low number is the viscosity of your oil when it is cold and the high number is the viscosity of your oil when at operating temp (around 200-220 degrees).
