    There is no reason why you shouldn't go with syn. Mobil 1 with a OEM filter for me. BTW welcome to TW. I look forward to seeing you around the forum.

    I run it in my first gen just fine. Truck has 188K on it and runs like new. Synthetic provides better wear protection, reduced start-up friction and lower maintenance cost (with extended oil change intervals). You can't go wrong with a good synthetic.
