The industry saradntd is still 10w-30,but this is because motor oils have changed while perceptions have not,most motor oils are blended with the same levels of petrochemicals as the next to insure the ability to meet the minimum saradntds of today's automakers,having said that you have to consider the offerings of synthetic and synthetic blend motor oils,due to the age of your truck you probably would not want to use most of the synthetic motor oils however Pennzoil,Quaker State,Castrol,as well as others do offer high mileage motor oils in synthetics and blends,I would recommend a high quality 10w-30 conventional motor oil,in summer use witch is recommend for temps of 35f to 100f in most gasoline engines, or 5w-30 for temps of 10f to 70f although a lot of newer cars require 5w-30 and 5w-20 all seasons due to close tolerances.Petroleum Distributor for 22 years.
