No harm to use the 0-40 weight oil. Sounds like that is recommended anyway.

Main thing is changing the oil & filter before it gets dirty.

Like @rowefast said, just consider your kind of weather on your area. If too hot = go a bit more viscous, too cold = a bit more lighter, but always ALWAYS use synthetic.

All dodge v8 and v10 have to run synthetic oil. They recommend red line synthetic but you can use store brand synthetic with close or to the same viscosity index. Seen brand new 5.7, 6.1 and 6.4 with lifters tapping because of standard oil.
