Default oil change interval

So what is the recommended interval between oil changes on a 2013 Ram 1500 hemi? I bought my truck with 6000 miles on it and there is no owners manual. The carfax said the first oil change was done at 4800 miles and the EVIC looks like it says 10,000 miles? It is reading about 58% and it has about 9500 miles now. I don't currently do any towing or hauling and about 60% of my driving is highway.

There is a book in the glove compartment that tells you. 6000 miles is the recommended interval

I misread oldjeep's post. Thought he said there was none hence part of my reply. But there's a ram truck app for phones that is like a mobile owners manual

You should be able to download a PDF version of the owner's manual from the Dodge web site.

Also remember that the change interval also depends on the type of oil you're to put -- whether regular or synthetic.
