semperfi,
I believe you need to use the exact weight oil Dodge specifies on these engines.
I read that this was because of the MDS system possibly not working exactly right with lighter/ heavier oils.
IIRC, there is even a Chrysler TSB on the issue.

Lots of opinions on this, but there's probably some substance to this issue of MDS operation with oil viscosity. I'd stick with the recommended weight. That 5W-30 is a common weight for most other vehicles. Do you have another vehicle that could use it?
