First off congrats on the new truck. I personally would stick with the CJ4 regardless of the DPF. The CI4 is for the older motors the additive packages in the CJ4 are better and designed for the newer motors ('07+). The CJ4 is backwards compatible where the CI4 is forward compatible.

When you ask what kind of oil should you get are you asking for weight or brands? Depending on what you do with your truck I suggest AMSOIL 5 or 15w-40. With the 5w-40 you are going to see a slight increase in fuel milage. If I can get you more information about AMSOIL please let me know.

You are going to need 15.1 quarts of oil for your truck.

Oil Filter AMSOIL SDF88 that is going to need to be changed at OEM intervals.

My suggestions on the fuel filter is every other oil change.

I hope this answers your questions. If you have anymore question or I can get you more information on AMSOIL products please let me know. You can PM, Email or give me a call.

Thanks

Stick with the CJ4, also make sure you use Motorcraft filters. The link below has a video showing why you should use the Motorcraft stuff, this is where I buy my filters as well.
