1000 mile oil change....to soon?

I was thinking about changing my initial oil at 1000 miles, is that overkill? I know the manufacturing process are better now, but I plan on keeping this truck a long time and want to make sure I treat it right. What the consensus?

You're just wasting your money. Change it when the computer tells you to, otherwise don't worry about it.

I hear of people doing that to get the stock stuff out and any contaminents the oil may have from break in and running it. It will not hurt anything, I do this myself when I buy a new vehicle.

I was thinking of doing my first one around 2,000 miles. It only has 1,300 and the oil looks pretty dark and has the strong diesel smell. It's funny all the new motorcycles i've owned call for the first change at 600 miles but trucks/cars it's normal change intervals.

I wouldnt hurt to change now, then change again at 5k miles, then go to your normal 5k change intervals and you will be sure to get all of the particals out.

Not necessary that soon but oil is cheaper than parts are and if it makes you feel better, do it. I serviced my truck at 5k miles, including first oil change. Going with computer recomendations now.
