    After reading here of the benifits of useing synthetic I've decided to make the plunge. My question is...With my truck having 15,000 miles on it allready would it be adviseable to run the first batch through the engine and change it before the recommended 5,000 miles/6 months (which ever comes first) in case the synthetic dislodges any material from useing the dino for that many miles?

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    No, just run it to the recommend change interval. You'll be fine.

    15,000 isn't going to have a lot or any kind of build up.

    My truck only had 2500 miles on it when I switched to synthetic the first time. I've been changing it 5K miles ever since.

    It's a personal preference. If your truck has anything that needs to be 'dislodged' after only 15,000 miles, then shame on Toyota!!
