You won't go wrong with the Mobil 1 5w30 truck and suv and a K&N oil filter. Do not use the fram oil filters.

I have heard that Fram is ****ty so I went with NAPA Gold. I my buddy workes at Auto Zone and he says they are the best so thats what I got.

All I know is that changing your own oil is one of the simplest things I have ever done to my truck. I wont ever get it changed again, granted if I have a place to do it myself. Its a total waste of money when you could get it done for half the cost.
