1st oil change

Hi all, just purchased a2012 F-250 6.2. When did everybody do there first oil change? The manual says 7,500 but that seems a little long for a break in period.

I did mine at 2000 then again at 5000. Now I am on every 5000 rotation. First one was free from the dealer.

I did my first one at 3000 miles. After that I do 5000 miles. I am also doing my own at home. Use Ford racing oil filters and mobil 1.
Knowing I use synthetic I do sometimes run it on to 6000 miles. I know its early for syn but I dont care. I like doing maintenance!
