Truck has 208K on it and has been ran on 15W40 Dino oil all its life (I'm assuming) I'd like to switch to synthetic 5W40 and am wondering if this might cause me to have some new oil leaks with the syn.?

I don't believe you will have any problems, I changed over to the syn oil my last oil change with 193k miles on mine. So far no leaks or any negatives & it starts quite a bit better in the cold.

Dont buy oil when it is full price. I always buy oil when there is a sale.

oreillies has the filter for $15 at my local store.
many places have filters for very cheap online. do a search.

I have gotten mobil 5w-40 for $4 per quart and the gallon for $19 and $20.

Same here . I shop around . And as far as new leaks when I switched to synthetic at 100,000 most of my oil seepage stopped after the first 5000 miles.
