Oil Too Clean at 3000 miles?

Well I have only done one oil change on the truck since I have owned it and after 3500 miles the oil still looks very clean, like gas motor clean. I have owned and been around multiple diesels over the past few years and the oil is always black as can be. I own a jeep with a 4 cyl diesel it it now also and it has the normal very black diesel oil even after 1000 miles it's super black. I owned a 7.3 two years ago and it also had the norm black oil.
I guess I just want to make sure nothing is wrong, I mean I would know it if the truck wasn't getting the oil press it needs, the gauge reads normal press.
Is there anything I should be worried about?
Maybe Ill take a pic and show you guys. Thanks

On my old man's truck (02 7.3) he lets the old drain for a couple hours every oil change. The oil looks new every time too. When he has it changed somewhere else it doesn't come out so clean.

No there is not a secondary filter, it has the ccv mod, but I don't think that would help that much!
