Well I am getting the ram going again. She needs an oil change desperately. Is super tech good enough to put in the truck for 3,000 miles or for 1 year? Also is the savings worth it on their synthetic or are you better off spending a little more. If it's great I'd happily save a few bucks on the cars oil to

I would use SuperTech with confidence. I use it from time to time, just use what meets the specs for your Ram.

Full disclosure... I have used it a couple of times in my 16 F150 so I am not just trolling.

I would mosey on over to Home Depot and get some Formula Shell for $13/jug. It has a nice, stout additive package.

Absolutely SuperTech would work for that application. In fact, I'd say it could handle it with ease and keep going.

SuperTech conventional is priced at $11.84 for the 5 quart jug. Good SN rated oil and money saver at that. I would have NO PROBLEM running it in your Ram for 3000 miles at the least.

I've been using ST conventional for 5k in my Camry. Meets specs, so how can it be bad?

1996 would be what, a 360? not sure those V8's ever cared, just that they had oil.

Don't forget the filter. An ST filter will also be fine to use.

Get SuperTech High Mileage version. Old seals might benefit from it.
Here is an old seal (31 years old!) and you know it could benefit from it:
