Coolant choices?

We'll I'm looking to swap the coolant in my truck and flush the radiator out. I'm not having any problems just figured it's time to change it. I'm not exactly sure on which coolant to use. At NAPA they have a heavy duty antifreeze that's pink and it's suppose to be no silicate and already has anti cavitation additives. Part # is "HD1GAL" I think. Has anyone ever used this or would you recommend it or something else?

Thanks

We all use that stuff.
It's called ELC - extended life coolant.

I have Rotella ELC in my truck

I run the Delo ELC in mine. Sort of a pain to find (I have to get it from the Port), but when I switched mine over two years ago the general consensus I read was that was one of the best. It's very important to do a proper and thorough flush when converting to ELC. The simple drain and pour will not do. I followed Gooch's instructions: Coolant flush
