Shell Rotella 15W40 here in my V8. If you makes lots of short trips in your truck without it getting all the way up to operating temp then it would be a good idea to change the oil more often. It can get gassy from the truck running with startup enrichment and having more fueling than when all the way at operating temp. Result is lost lubricity because the gas thins the oil.

I have appreciated the generous replies people. The truck has been mint up till now and I am loathe to screw it up now that it's in my hands.

These engines tend to get dirty/gummy pretty quick. OK so the oil needs good detergents. Here's where I go crazy...do the detergents not nullify the zinc??
