Default Oil change on the 5.7

I have a 2014 5.7 Hemi sport ram 1500. My first oil change is due and wanted to see what everyone else is using.

I am running Mobil 1 full synthetic. When you talk to people on here you will see that there is a great number of people running full synthetic, blends, and standard oil. The synthetic is expensive, I can say that. I have only put about 5,000 miles on the truck since making the switch. It sat for a year while I was over seas with an occasional drive around the block from a family member. I think its doing rather well and if it helps extend the life of the motor, it'll be worth the money. 5W30 is the weight I'm running.

I used regular valvoline this time. Might switch to synthetic but there is a lot of discussion about it and many say you don't need it. I like the fact that you can go longer intervals with synthetic though so I may switch and do my oil changes every 7500 miles.
