What oil do you use?

Well, it is almost time for the first change for the Lightning. I am doing this one myself, what do you run or recommend. My Screw has gone to the dealer for both changes to date, mainly because a warranty issue had come up both times.

True, problem with used is I don't know what is or was in there.
The dealer I bought the truck from has not been very helpful with some issues and I certainly don't want to take the truck back there. Heck they couldn't even safety it right.emb:
