1st post - '16 Tradesman Quad 4X4

literally my first brand new vehicle, only one truck before (S-10, 2WD), so I'm getting used to a LOT, but I love it

being 49, I'm itching to change the oil after 500 miles "cause that's what my dad/uncle did when they rebuilt a motor"; haven't found anything specifing synthetic, but that's what I want to use; any suggestions? and the dealer is
giving me 5 oil changes at 5K intervals, would changing it early on my own matter?

thanks for the advice and look forward to the board....

Go ahead and change that oil out a couple times at the short intervals. Doesn't hurt a thing. It is a break in period.

Your choice for synthetic oil is yours. Don't think there is a bad choice in that respect. I'm a Mobil fan. Others use different options. Your call.
