CJ-4, CI-4, CH-4 oils????

What's the difference between all of these? I'm a new diesel owner and I want to take care of my truck from day one. The truck's manual says I need CJ-4 oil, whatever that means. I think I'm sold on Valvoline Premium Blue. I plan to start changing my own oil, and being that I know nothing about oil, I'm planning on using whatever Cummins endorses, so Valvoline it is. My question is:

http://www.valvoline.co.za/Valvoline...e%2015W-40.pdf

...this website says that Valvoline Premium Blue meets API CI-4, and CH-4 specs. It doesn't mention anything about CJ-4 which is apparently what I need. Is this oil ok for my new 6.7?

This truck is awesome by the way. It just hit 450 miles and the fuel light is on (mostly city driving). I suppose I need to get some highway time before I get a CEL. Don't so much care about the mileage. Five bucks a gallon or not, life is too short not to have a few toys.
