What oil(and filter) do you use?

I'm pretty sure I've seen a thread on this before but I couldn't find it when doing a search.

I usually use Royal Purple, but recently decided to go with AmsOil for the new truck. I'm sticking with using K&N HP filters

Bosch oil filter
K&N air filter
I live in Florida so I use 10W 30 year round, I also put oil stabilizer in with the oil when I change it.

Edit: Lucus heavy duty Oil stabilizer & Lucas Gtx oil.

What kind of new truck?

I ran royal purple in my lightning. But I am going to be using amsoil in the cobra.

Have heard too many horror stories on royal purple causing oil leaks from breaking down seals and gaskets.

Yeah. Granted the big trucks hold more oil but they get 25,000 per oil change.

In a pick up I bet he could safely get 7-8k between changes. Just change filter every 4k

Yes. I buy the lowest(up to 12,000 they claim). They have some that you don't have to change for 25,000 miles

So far I love it. WAY better than the Colorado Z71('06) I had.

My Corvettes get Mobil1 synthetic, since that's what they got from the factory and I think it's good oil, although I do like Royal Purple a lot as well.

I can also wholeheartedly endorse the Titan Pro4X. I had an '08 and loved it. Have a regular '05 Titan now.
