So I happened across this string while looking to see what interval most guys are using between oil changes as the Owner's Manual says 6k but I just took my truck in for the first of four free changes and they noted the next change due in 3k miles.

As background I'm 48 y/o and have only paid for an oil change twice in my life. After reading this string my thought is Mobil 1 5w20 with either a K&N or Mobil 1 filter every 6k. I've used Mobil 1 on all my ATV's with great results but usually use conventional on my cars - I know, probably a bit backwards but I love my toys and never really owned a high performance vehicle. I'm planning on keeping this truck around for several years. I'll probably be putting about 12k a year on the truck so cost is not a big issue.

Any thoughts, suggestions or comments??

Wonder why yours says 6,000 miles? Both my old 2011 and new 2012 say 8,000 miles

I put Mobil 1 in mine and I am thinking of dumping it as the hemi tick is louder than ever.

I always ran Royal Purple in my 04' and I plan on doing the same with the new rig when it is ready for it's first oil change.
