It says in your manual, 5w40 is what your looking for. Go synthetic if you can swing it.

2008 (Job 1) F250 King ranch 4x4, snow plow prep package with 2.5 level. Black Maxx, B&W Diehard platinums. Dieselsite coolant and transmission filters, NCU Motorsports/amsoil oil bypass kit. Turbo blankets, 5.5 PMF traction
Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

Ran Rotella-T6 5W40 for several years. No have just Rotella-T 15W40 and can't say I can tell any difference.

A Fumoto valve makes draining much easier. Once installed you can climb under the truck and place a gallon jug under, open the valve until the jug is full. Swap for the next and repeat until drained.

Only 3 gallons? 12 quarts in a 15 quart system?
