Yes, you need to buy Diesel oil. It typically called Heavy Duty Oil. For instance; Walmart carries Rotella T conventional, synthetic blend and full synthetic, Delo 400, Mobil, Motorcraft, and their own brand. DO NOT USE REGULAR MOTOR OIL.
As far as synthetics go. I see no reason to waste money on them. Read the Blackstone reports. I would never trust my oil to go 15,000 or 20,000 miles on synthetic. Like I said earlier, changing your oil early every 5,000 miles is cheap, cheap insurance on a $15,000+ engine.
Your engine will tell you when to change the oil, but's I believe it's only based on mileage since reset.
There will be guys on here saying that they let their synthetics go for 20,000 + miles using Amsoil. I would never buy a used truck that the owner did that, no matter what. Having good oil change records is a good way to boost value on a truck when you go to sell it.
Oil breaks down over time and looses it's lubricity and protective qualities. Keep clean oil in it and your engine will thank you.

Chevy comercials are like OBAMA, ALL B.S. over promise and under deliver
This stuff isn't as simple as tuning your TiVo to record your Jerry Springer re-runs while your out cruising Wal-mart parking lot for transexual hookers.
