I use either Valvoline or Mobil 1 synthetic. If I know I’m going to be towing heavy crap a lot in the heat, I’ll put 75w-140 in the rear and 75w-90 in the front. Otherwise, synthetic 75w-90 both front and back.

It just depends which is on sale when I need it; I’ve had similar good results with both Valvoline and Mobil 1.
