I really think going the full extent of the oil level monitor is a bit extreme. In my case I went at the 6 month mark which was 8,500KM for me and my oil life monitor read 45% at that time so it was accurate to say 16,000KM is when the oil life monitor would recommend the change. Some people are still changing at 3K on 5K points since they are so old school. I think peace of mind doing it a bit more often is not a bad thing.
Also consider your driving habits. Do you tow much or drive the truck harder conditions? Consider it more often a little common sense goes a long way.
