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.

I picked up my new Ram last week and I was told the engine oil was a synthetic blend. Since I plan on keeping this one for a long time I pam going to switch over to full synthetic very soon. My intervals will probably be at 5000 miles. My mechanic recommends letting the oil go about 8k but changing the filter at 4k.
