Amsoil Severe Gear is great stuff, but if you want something off the shelf, Valvoline Synpower 75W90 meets the SAE J2360 specification which is a tougher specification than just GL-5.

I would advise part #88863089 alias 9986285 from a GM dealer.

Off the shelf, Mobil 1 75w-90 is available. If there's an AAP near you use an online coupon to get it for $7.69/qt

Online, Red Line and Amsoil

Another vote for valvoline synpower 75w90 or chevron Delo 75w90 syn. Both are under $10 a quart.

Any full synthetic GL5 75w90 can be used.

But, I'd recommend an OTR equivalent with Dana/Mack/Eaton/Arvin... specs.
Check your local truck stops to see what they carry.
