Default Oil in my new truck

Recently purchased a 2010 Big Horn edition, 5.7L Hemi. Im wanting to put full synthetic oil in it and wondering what you guys use. I used Castrol GTX high mileage in my 02 Ram and never had a problem.

I understand that, I'm trying to figure out what type of synthetic oil people recommend.

You will get 5000 different answers. Everyone will have their own opinion. I buy whatever synthetic is on sale.

Here's an existing thread on the subject.

Mobile 1 but also others synthetics if they go on sale... like Valvoline...

I am currently changing oil and filter at 8K miles... I might do 6K miles if I were a daily driver but most of my miles are highway miles
