Default Valve adjustment?

I have an 04 Ram 24valve... how often do we need to get a valve adjustment?

It's not "scheduled" until 100K.

Valve adjustment is fairly simple.

A 1/2" breaker bar and 15mm socket to turn the engine over to TDC twice

A 9/16" box / open end wrench to loosen / tighten the jam nut

And, I believe, a 4.5mm or 5 mm allen wrench to adjust the lash.

.008, .010, .012, .020, .025, .028 feeler gauges.

.010 on the intake, .025 on the exhaust ( I usually do mine at .020 to get rid of a little valve train noise).
