My truck wants the oil change NOW!, and is only 5500 km. It al started when it was 4500 km and I said "WTF??? there's no way I'm gonna do the oil change now, I mean it still looks in good shape, so it is gonna last 'til 10000 km

Actually you are right about the beer (in almost every case), but trust me, nowadays almost any oil is designed to last that long or more. It all depends on the operating coditions of the vehicle, so if you have a really heavy foot, and you always drive with extreme heavy payloads it is obvious that the oil is going to lose its properties sooner than if you drive only highway with no payload.
