    @ how many miles do you change your initial break in oil & how many after that??

    I know what the book says, but looking for real world time frame

    Honestly, you're going to get all different kinds of opinions. I will tell you that I just completed my first oil change just under 1,000 miles. It was probably a big waste of time and money, but that's my standard procedure. The Raptor doesn't use a special break in oil. So with that being said, you can change it whenever you want. Just know that it's true what guys say about this truck being a pain in the ass to change the oil.

    Whenever you change it is fine. But go check it now. Mine was about two quarts low at ~6k miles...my fault for not checking, accepted...but seriously WTF?!
