I just changed to Mobil 1 5w-30 and a Bosch filter this weekend. I have 100k miles on the truck.

I ran that combo on my old 02 GMC Sierra and never had any problems. I would go about 5k miles between changes since I lived down a dirt road, but I could have probably gone longer.

Bosch is an all metal filter (not cardboard like Fram) and is only about $6.
