    I use Mobil 1, but about every week there is a new oil thread on this forum, with LOTS of opinions. Try searching "oil change" in the search box, and check the "Search titles only" and "Search this forum only" boxes. Used Oil Analyses from Blackstone show that most any OW-20 synthetic (as specified in the manual for the V-6) will serve you just fine.

    Well, I’ll tell you what I use.

    Cooked down some shit bacon my buddy gave me, about 15oz oil per Lb!

    Runs great and smells like breakfast.

    You’ll be surprised what other mofos use on here!

    Ok really I use this now

    Did you buy the truck new? If so don’t you get 2 years free oil changes from the dealer?

    I used Mobil 1 this time because it was the one AutoZone was doing a special on. That's usually how I pick my oil changes lol, any 0-20 will do fine and I prefer to use synthetics.

    Penzoil has a rebate going on right now, $10 back if you buy a 5qt jug. Paid $26 on Amazon, plus 7 for the OEM filter so after rebate I'll be at $23 for a full synthetic oil change.

    Ive read tests in the forum say Toyota brand oil is slightly better than mobil1 or other 0w-20. I use Toyota oil but I’m sure any 0-w20 will work. Just have to shop and see what price you can get.

    Redline is as good as it gets. One of the only true Group V poly ester synthetics along with Amsoil and Motul.

    If you run a remote filter, Redline will go to 100,000 miles. I’ll never do that, but it really never breaks down, only gets contaminated.
