Default First Oil Change

My new Crew Cab w/Hemi just turned over 2,000 miles, so I decided it would be a good time to get the breakin oil out of it for some new. I decided to try Castrol Syntec Blend a go. I also had to choose between a Fram and Mobil 1 oil filter. I opted for the Mobil 1 filter, but will probably go with the Fram or Mopar the next change. Anyone see any problems with Castrol Syntec Blend and Mobil 1 combo?

What are you all using, or planning on using when your oil change comes up?

NEVER use the FRAM, tests have shown how bad the are, the synthetic is fine, I would have waited till it was broken in though, giving the rings full time to seat,the MOPAR filter is excellent, and the mobil 1, the wix filters came out real good also

So the rings may or may not seat properly with new oil? The salesman actually recommended an early oil change at 1000 miles to get all the metal shavings out, of course a salesman is not a technician.

I always do what your salesman recommended. I used the Mopar and Mobil 1 5w-20.
