Is the factory oil a syn blend?

Been reading about this. Does the factory put a synthetic blend in when it builds the truck?

Any reason to use the same when changing the oil or is it better to go to full synthetic? Yeah I know there are about 10,000 threads on this.

i was told it came with a blend,not 100% on that ,chuck at sullivan bros told me when i purchased it new,after my first change i have been using full synth castrol 5/30.
i do know of another friend of a friend that uses standard oil that has tapping issues on start up. go with the synth change it every 7000 miles just my 2 cents
Next time you're in for an oil change walk right in to the sales floor while chuck is trying to make a deal and tell him in front of his customers he's full of SH$T and what you think of him.
