first oil change on truck. Wanting to go full synthetic oil

hey guys.

My truck is getting close to its first oil change. Im wanting to go to a full synthetic oil. I was wondering if anyone was running the motorcraft 5w40 full synthetic? How does this oil hold up? If you dont like motorcraft do you run rotella, mobile 1 or valvoline oil.

Thanks for your input Brad

I have only changed my oil once, second change is coming up due now. But I went with rotella T6 full synthetic and a motorcraft filter. No complaints here, but I'm only at 13xxx miles

Have a 2011 and use Amsoil 5w40, changing every 20K miles and samples to Blackstone. All samples good and went from 15K to 20K due to high base number at 15K. Have 70,000 on truck.

I ran Valvoline Premium Blue in my 6.0 and my 6.4 and plan to switch my 6.7 over to it soon. Back when I had my 6.0 I heard some guys had issues with their trucks running the Rotella, since I was interested in it, so I went to the Valvoline. No regrets, actually believe the trucks ran better on it over the stock motorcraft
