Hard to go wrong with Rotella T6 although it's not LL01 approved. Might want to change it before 10k miles to be safe.

Motul 8100 or Lubro Moly. Whichever my shop throws in there when I take it in for an oil change. Both are great synthetics and my intervals being every 6K, I don't get myself bogged down in the oil details/arguments.

Motul 8100 5W40 here as well. Does not get that hot here, but this oil should be able to handle anything you throw at it.
