I have a 2013 Ram 1500 with a 4.7 V8.

It has 42,000 kms.

I live up north in SK Canada. We get really cold weather.
I drive primarily short city trips. I tend to drive it hard which means hard acceleration, braking, cornering, etc.

I am looking to keep the vehicle for a long time and want a longer OCI.

What are your thoughts on which oil and filter?

If you need more info let me know. I currently use a 0w-20

Shell products with pureplus technology is what is "called for" by chrysler now days. Havent heared anything about mopar filters but oem usually gets the job done.

So you want a longer OCI. That can be done. Does Canada get Mobil1 Annual Protection 0w20? Go 1 year on it, and whatever miles, as long as its under 20k miles (32k km) per year.
Mobil claims to have an anti-oxidant package in there, with their part-PAO base oils, to last easily 1 year.

Fram Ultra XG2 is about the best oil filter available, based on performance and construction. 1 oil filter can go up to 32k km, but I'd just change it every second oil change with your light amount of miles you put on.

That should basically work for 1 year given your low miles you put on, not to exceed 15k miles per year, or 24k km per year.
If you really want a great oil, and are willing to pay a little more, get Ravenol 0w20, which uses PAO+POE base oils, among other more expensive, high performance goodies. I might use that one at some point. Mobil1 EP and AP oils do have good amounts of PAO and other cool additive, so its generally good enough though.

Both RP and Amsoil SS are extended drain oils, particularly in comparison to what the OEM OCIs would be for the vehicle in question.

The 4.7 was originally spec'd for a 30 weight. In your climate for extended drains? Amsoil 0w30 with an Amsoil filter. Done.

Stay with a full synthetic 0W20 and OEM filter. Pennzoil, Castrol, Valvoline, Mobil-1 are good oil choices.

I don't believe any of the suggestions your getting are going to be any better than that Amsoil 0w20 you are presently using. I also wouldn't alternate oils like you're doing ,I think the Amsoil is a better oil than the RP. Stay with the SS and a Fram Ultra filter. It's about the best tandem I can think of. Also good win for the Roughriders tonight over the Argos. Sweet revenge...

All of the suggestions you have received here are very good.

Your engine requires 5w-30 and that is what I would recommend. Shell presently is the only oil that is spec'd for that engine and is factory fill and used by dealers. If you are out of warranty, who cares?

Not to be sarcastic but if you intend on keeping this truck a long time, please change your driving habits. You can still go a long time but with costly repair bills. Driving hard will also shorten you OCI.

I do periodic longer trips to combat this. Ill go for a longer trip once a week or so to fight this.

0w-30 is a much better choice
