Does Ram use break in oil on their new trucks?

I've got a new truck & am wondering at what miles I should do the first oil change. Salesman said 8K which seems way too high to me. I was thinking 1k or 1.5K on the first change, but I'm wondering if Dodge uses break in oil on their new trucks. Also was thinking of putting synthetic in but someone told me the 5.7 Hemi's should not use synthetic oil. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

break in oil

To the best of my knowledge, no automotive mfr. today fills their vehicles with any special break-in oil (though I have heard a rumor that Honda does.) I have seen a bottle of Royal Purple that was labeled as a break-in oil, but think it was intended for newly rebuilt engines. The dealership changes mine and I always specify full synthetic Mopar, which I understand to be Pennzoil.
