You can safely run any (x)W-30 because they are all 30W, the W stands for "Winter" and is an imperical rating of cold weather start-ups. Your owner's manual can help you the most.

When and if I get my Ram, I will be using a 10w-30 from Mobil 1/Amsoil and or a good 0w-30 like GC year round. (GC= German Castrol)

Huh? me=> [Freak] [Dummy!] [Bang Head] I gotta dump everything I learned. I hate when that happens. Big dog: Use a good quality 5W-30 in the winter or summer. A 10W-30 would probably be OK for the summer.

[Welcome!] Congrats on the new truck BigDog. 10W-30 won't hurt your truck and the Havoline would be fine. Later you may want to consider what Buster said. These would be the ideal choices. [Big Grin]
