Can't do that... I do not believe in extended OCI's. I'm from the old school where 3K maximun was the standard. The truck specs 5K. So I met I the middle and been at 4K (give or take 50-100 miles). The oil does smell stronger every OC.

No doubt that is "old school" now. Even today's dinos are easily good for 5k mile ocis. Your money and your vehicle though.
