    Hey guys,
    Just curious about your opinions on when to change the oil or how soon to change it when you take the truck for a weekend off-roading? I’ll probably go up north a few times this summer to the dunes and drive it pretty hard. Do you just change it at 5k every time no matter the conditions? Or 5k when you have fun with it and 7k when you just do normal driving? Any input would be appreciated

    10k is the normal interval. I stick with that. unless conditions are "extreme"

    But..... If I was do do a weekend off road event, where i was sucking in a bunch of dirt and sand......yes...i think that warrants "extreme duty" and i would do a change of oil.

    Same thing in the summer. when it is 105 degrees out, a 10k oil change may happen at 7k for me.

    I would change it every 5k if possible, no matter. I've gone as far as 7500 on mine due to highway road travels, but 5k is my "normal" vs the Ford "normal" use change at 10k miles.

    Extreme weather and conditions here in Dubai so the usual for me is an oil change every 5,000KM
