    From pg. 175 of your Owners' Manual, synthetic is what is recommended.  It tells you just what to use.

    Thanks!
    I found the information now and will definitely use full synthetic, and the recommended final drive oil as well.   I t looks a lot easier to do on the trophy than the BMW LT. 
    Thanks,
    Jim
