synthetic oil

I have a 2002 F250 SD 7.3L and I am looking to switch over to synthetic oil. I've heard that there is a full synthetic and I've seen a 15-40 blend. Not sure which way to go. I'm sure there are many brands out there but not sure what I should use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Rotella T6 is hard to beat, and Delo is a cheap, good alternative.

AMSOIL has a preferred customer/dealer program for wholesale pricing.
