the gm dealer can give you an accurate factory recommendation.
how long you have owned the truck and it's previous history will determine what needs doing.
with 100000 miles, items like water pump, fuel pump,exhaust parts,plugs,wires,cap rotor,calipers,bearings,02 sensor could all be issues but you need to know if they need changing as well as whether the engine needs a timing belt or chain.

Personally I prefer synthetics for quite a number of reasons, unless you have an engine that is using lots of oil, either burning or leaking.
Oil grade is important. the first number is the pour point at 0 degrees the second is the protection offered at running temp (usually at 220 degrees) With a synthetic though, most times the numbers do not reflect the reality that the oil flows and protects at a far lower and higher temp than indicated on the container. Additionally, it does not break down into gunk, even when contaminated or left in far longer than recommend change intervals.
Scientific tests such as noac volatility tests bear this out as well as the longevity of everything I've used it in: 350K or better from every engine I've had, and still running well when I sold them!
As an "everything" grade, I'd use a 10w or 20w oil with a second number of 40 or 50. You can "google" noac test results for more info.

These are oil cooler lines and there are 2 sets of 2 and should be replaced, Fairly easy but messy. If one blows apart you run the risk of causing severe engine damage.
