Three thousand mile oil changes are excessive. If it worries you that the truck tells you to change it that often, send out an oil sample and have it tested. Chances are that it will come back just fine and you will see that you're wasting money by changing it that often.
I would reset and drive on another 4K + miles. I've read a lot of people go around 10K miles between changes, some in the 15K range and even into the 25K range, but I don't recommend that unless you have it tested periodically.
