Air 30K
Oil - when the DIC says about 15% I do an oil change...seems about 7500 miles
Fuel - when the DIC says 10% or 10K miles whichever comes first.
trans - 10K miles

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

just changed oil/fuel/trans tonight, DIC on oil was at 0% , DIC on fuel was 35%, i never even thought to keep track of mileage, but i think i will be changing them all at the same time from now on, just makes sense to change them all at once, the air filter i havn't even had this truck for 30K miles, but i have already changed the air filter once, and the filter minder is still in the green and going strong

On the DIC, Oil Life is set at 10K miles, and the Fuel Life is set at 15K.

what do you mean by "set at"? You can set these options or is that some factory default?

Factory default. The DIC uses percentages of those mileages.

So when the oil is at 50%, assuming you reset it, you have 5K miles on that oil.

Oil is done every 5-7k, when it's convenient. Fuel is every other oil change. Clean my air filter about 2X per year. Manual tranny has no filter Every oil change I lube the front end and check front/rear diffs. and Xfer case fluids.

I let the trans go to 25K before changing.

I put transynd in it shortly after buying. I didn't see the tranny temps drop quite like I thought they would. May go back to the stock stuff when I dump the fluid at 45K.

They told me transynd was good for 40K miles.
