Do mine by the owners manual, usually there is a severe duty and standard duty schedule. I go with severe duty as I live on a dirt country road. My trucks have all gone to the selling dealer their whole life so I never worry about it.

I have a 2013 GMC 2500 6.0 L, and the oil life monitor sets it at 7,500 miles, so far I've only changed it once right at that mark. I have no plans to change it any sooner. This is what warranties are for haha.

I also rotate the tires at the same time (I only do 10K per year btw)

My 2014 F150 also ran synthentic and I never changed it before 5K miles on that one. Traded it with 105K miles on it, never had an engine issue and it didn't burn up any oil between changes, fwiw.

I also change the oil in all of my vehicles every 5000 miles. Easy to keep up with via the odometer.....when it rolls around to 5 or 10 thousand, I know it is time.

Every 5K or a little sooner if a long trip is planed. Also do the rear diff every 10K and the trans once a year. Dealer does the trans, no dip stick and is a sealed unit.

I normally go 5k miles as a guide, or at least once a year.

OK, so I finished changing the oil and filter and when I get done with this post I am going back out and will crawl under and grease the truck. I suppose the grease interval may as well be the same as the oil change interval? I don't remember my f150 having many if any grease fittings but this gmc is loaded with them.

Rotella t6 every 5-7k ...all of my blackstone samples say I could prob go a lot longer. At 22k on it its had 3 oil changes and a new set of fuel filters....its mostly parked in the garage these days as i dont drive it as much so ill just go to once a year changes since I wont hit 7k ...i cant imagine even if I was clocking a lot of mileage I would ever go over 7 max....on the flip side I had an 88gmc that was my beater. burned oil (quart a month)...just added oil...never changed it or the was still running good 8 yrs later when the block and tranny were swapped!! that was on cheap ol walmart oil...
