Assuming you mean the engine oil -- I use Rotella T6 full synthetic - 15w40. By all means, whatever you use should be rated for diesels.

For the transmission, any 15w40 is fine.

Your viscosity requirements may be different, depending on the climate where you live.

Take a look at this topic, I listed some really important maintenance things that should not be neglected –– especially when the history of the truck is unknown.
