Engine oil preferences

I wonder if you guys have any brand preferences in terms of engine oil for your truck? or you don't ask your mechanic about such things? I've personally used Royal Purple for a while already and don't have any issues with.

Probably a 5W-20 or 5W-30 oil because of the low temperature during wintertime and a synthetic blend at that. They're generally formulated for pickups and SUVs, also pretty affordable.

What about brand name? Or you don't have any preferences about it?

I never used anything but the standard oil they use which I believe is Rotella. Last time I used higher end oil was Motul in my Honda's.
