What is the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7’s oil type?

I bought a used 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 4.7-liter V-8 under the hood. I was going to save money by changing the oil myself, but I’m not sure what kind it takes. What oil type goes in the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7?

A 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 uses six quarts of synthetic SAE 5W-30 oil to conduct a proper oil change. If you want to ensure that the 240-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 under the hood of your
Dodge Ram 1500
runs smoothly, replace the oil about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the mileage on the odometer. The higher the mileage, the more frequently you should replace the oil.
