was reading the manual some more tonight and found where it suggests the "Motorcraft Motor Oil 10W30 Super Duty"....
found it online at O'Reiley/Kragan auto parts.... looks to be a regualar (non-synthetic or blend oil) BUT not for sure as I haven't seen it in person.

Manual also stated that if you tow a trailer over 1000 miles you are in the "severe operation", you use the SAE 5W-40. I'm going to put Mobile 1 SAE 5W-40 in for my first oil change. Anyone see a problem with that? I tow a 1700 lb camper in extreme temp. sometimes.

I use the Mobile 1 5w-40 syn. And it does meet the specs as indicated in the owners manual.

Today I bought 13 qt of 5W-40 Mobile 1 Syn for $3.99 a quart at the New Haven Auto zone- just in case someone else is looking for a good deal.
