Welcome! Wow that is one LONG sentence! Use an API approved engine oil (CJ-4 is the current classification). 15W-40 is the typical weight oil to use. If it is going to be used in the winter and sit outside, I recommend either 10W-30 or 5W-40. I use Mack branded filters.

Welcome aboard. Where in CT. are you?

As the others stated, 15-40. I also run Shell rotella every 10,000 miles

Take a half day to look over the whole truck. look for grease fittings and such

And yes, pictures are required nice to have

Okay so I was able to locate fuel and oil filters is there any special procedure for changing the fuel filters priming steps or anything I should be aware of before I get involved

I fill the new oil filters with clean oil before spinning them on. Same with new fuel filters only use clean Diesel fuel.
