I get free oil changes from the dealer so might as well get it ever 3k right?

Right now I have a brand new truck. With almost 3000 miles I have changed the oil once. At 1500 miles I went ahead and changed it as the motor was "Breaking in" and I knew it would be guzzling oil etc. Wasn't bad I didn't have to do it at all, but It's just me. A lot of people recommend for the first break in change your oil every 1500 miles. I am about to take a 1200 mile trip and Ill come back at 4200 miles and get the oil changed for the second time. After that I will be sticking with the every 3-4k mile intervals. (:

I love reading these oil threads. If you really want to know what is going on with your oil and engine wear, send in a oil sample to a lab. Blackstone labs does excellent work and will email you the results in a few days. I don't work for them or own stock I'm just a customer who made yearly oil changes in my last truck with class 4 synthitcs just to see what would happen because i just don't drive much and changing every 3 months sounded crazy. 8 oil changes in 8 years with only 65k but it ran like new and all internals were wearing within spec for my model and engine.
