I didn't know that Ford recommended synthetic. I will probably go with Mobil 1 synthetic. I will have to make sure they make it in 5W-20. I assume they do. I think I am running some other brand 5W-20 Synthetic in my '03 V-10.

I bought my 08 new and have only used the recomended motorcraft 5w-20 and motorcraft filter. I change the oil every 5-7k miles and have never had an issue. I tow a lot and plow commercialy in the winter. Considering I was in Afghanistan for a year and had had another dd for another year I put 90k miles on it in basically 3 years without any issues with the oil.

The first thing to note is the color. We have to be a little different, coming from a Mopar background...so the block is painted Small block Chrysler blue.
