On the fence about oil
 
So I will like all my other vehicles doing my own oil changes and maintenance. But am undecided about oils want to run syn only cause I like the characteristics of them.

We don't have much selection out there that meet Chrysler MS-6395 about four manufacturers in all want to see what you guys prefer. I will most likely using Mopar filter from my buddies garage(he is the director of the dealership) but feel free to give your opinion about filters too

I wouldn't put much stock in manufacturers certifications. They are more a licensing scheme than anything in my opinion. If you use a full synthetic oil you will be fine.

amsoil for this guy

Looks like there aren't that many that have achieved the certification due to Chrysler's two year field testing requirement.

i have been using penzoil ultra im hemi and pentastar jeep. ultra is getting hard to find, so waht are the oils that are certified.

PP. Fairly easy to find, goes on sale ALOT @ Advance and Autozone, and is one of the best oils on the market right now. Would also use Amsoil or RP, but they're a little harder to find and never on sale.

I believe the Rams from the factory come with Pennzoil so that is likely what I will be using as well when it comes time that I do my own oil changes. (Two freebies from dealer)

Pennzoil is great oil, whether it is the Dino or Synthetic, the 100's, if not 1000's of UOA's on bob is the oil guy .com (www.bobistheoilguy.com) proves it beyond a reasonable doubt.

I am not a big fan of Royal Purple, not saying it is a bad oil, but there is nothing "Superior" to it at all, at least nothing that comes remotely close to the price they charge for it!

If you really want to learn about oils, greases, ATF fluid, or anything else oil/lube related, and a bunch of of things, check out the site. It is a site just like this, members join and show their UOA's (used oil analysis) that they have had done at a lab of their choice.

I have 270,000 miles on my hemi RT Magnum and 190,000 miles on my Ram. Neither burn a drop. I used to use Mobil One and Mopar filters, but when the Platinum came out I switched and also switched to Fram XG16 filters. 10,000 mile changes. Guess what, oil is way cleaner at 10,000 miles and Blackstone Labs says wear metals are excellent. They suggest I go 12-15,000 miles on changes.
