Default 05 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi Oil Question

So I recently got a 2005 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi with 101k miles. I'm planning on changing the oil soon so I know what's being run in it, but I'm not sure which oil to use. My dad always prefers Mobil-1 pure synthetic, but my father-in-law prefers something else. What would be the best oil to use in it?

Mobil-1 is one of the best for general use, all my family members vehicles use it.

Most oils are pretty good nowadays. Being 13 years old you may look for a "high mileage" one with a little more detergency and that has seal conditioners

I ran Penzoil platinum 5w20 in my last 05 Ram, for 276,000 miles. Burned no oil, ran excellent.
