I'm using mobil 1 5w-30.
I'd avoid using any pyramid scheme oil such as Amsoil.

Not the 5.4, but the 6.8 Triton. Mobil1 5W-30 since the 1st oil
change and changes at about 3,000 miles. Just ticked off 73k on the
odometer. No problems at all.

As for Amsoil.. I know a few people who swear by it, but after
hearing some of the bullshit stories people (Last Church Mikey being
the largest purveyor of Amsoil bullshit) have posted regarding it's
performance, I'd never use it.

SS, I use Mobil1 10W30 in everything that's gas here and oil's changed
every 4500 mis. The only 5.4 was a '01 Lightning (chip/pulley)...no
problems. I've never used Amsoil nor will I.

Used Mobil 1 5w30 until the 5w20 came out recently, which I used in last oil
change. Seemed to get about a 1-2 mpg increase in fuel mileage but long term
is yet to be determined. 6.8L V10.

Re: anyone running synthetic oil in Ford 5.4 Triton V8 ?

I've been running Amsoil in both of my vehicles and never have had a
problem.
02 E-150 5.4 L
03 F-250 SD 5.4L
I also run Amsoil in all of my snowmobiles, weedeater and blower.
Been happy with it.

Do these items see the constant use that a Truck does?

No offense, and none intended.

I have never seen any of the following self destruct based upon the
oil chosen for their use.
