To use or not use amsoil

Okay guys,

I have always used motorcraft oil and filters when I do my change. I would like to know if amsoil is better and if I should start using it and there filters. My truck is a 04' 250 with 120k on miles.

Also, I have never had a prob with my truck. It is all stock but the 6" lift. I want to do mods but want to make sure it won't start causing probs to a perfect truck. Any advise would be great. Thanks for any and all help.

I had trouble with the Delo 400, when I ran that it consumed oil like crazy. I switched over to Amsoil and it's a lot better. I do burn some oil but it's more controled.

I use AMSOIL in all five vehicles in my driveway. Good stuff! Can't go wrong in my opinion.

when you buy the oil make sure you dont buy the new cj-4 oil. i am a amsoil dealer and they make oil for 2007 and older motors and 2007 and newer. if you run 15w40 you want to buy the heavy duty diesel and marine motor oil- Product Code: AME1G-EA that is one gallon jug. the new cj-4 oil rating on all oils has some of the additves stripped ou of the oil to help the trucks pass emissions.

One person on here is going 10k on his ams and his test is says its still good. I will be testing mine also at 10k after the 2nd change. make sure the oil u get is for pre 2007. amsoil is better than most. is syn.

Im not sure about the filters tho. I get mine from Diesel Filters,Additives,brake rotors, and brake pads for Chevy, Dodge and Ford Diesel Trucks Racor is nice and cheep. its an off brand from motorcraft.
