    I always change trucks oil at 3k whether its synthetic or not thats just how I am, I am very big on routine maintenace on everything I own. Also when I change oil I grease and check over everything Tranny fluid gets changed once a year in the fall

    When the good techs at Schaefer labs tell me to.That's really the only true way of knowing when to changeout,with a SOS.Of course,it won't hurt anything to change beforehand except a possible waste of some money.

    Oil
    Gasser- 3000
    PSD-5000

    Trans.
    Auto-Yearly in Fall and Remote Filter Change (Though ford recommends 3 years i believe)
    Hand Shaker- Bleed and/or Change as Spongi-ness Occurs

    Coolant-
    Supposedly Maintainence Free, until 100,000,,,doesn't hurt to float test regularly, and/or flush.

    Differentials-
    Every Other Year in the Fall

    Trans Case-
    30,000

    Unfortunately, most of the grease fittings have been eliminated, gives me one less thing to maintain. :(

    Also part of my oil change maintainence, is a fluid check of everything, coolant float test, Tire pressure and condition, Battery Load Test, and brake check. Among other minor stuff.
