How many miles between oil changes

This may be a dumb question but should I really not change the oil until the truck tells me to? This is the first vehicle I have ever had to say this. All my previous trucks(gas not diesel) I would change every 5k miles with full synthetic and never had issues. Also how many miles are you guys usually going between oil changes?

The owner's manual...diesel....states about 7500 miles for oil change....You have an oil life monitor that will let you know the PCM thinks if you should change it sooner....you can also run a vehicle health report and keep tabs on your oil life.

I change mine every 4500 miles.

Not going longer than that, I don't care what some monitor tells me.

Towing, idling, 120F ambient air temps, stop/go traffic...... Oil is cheap.
