I change it every 3k... For some reason, my truck will read "Change engine oil" even before the 3k miles...00 Chevy Tahoe LT, 5.3 4x4

I was tossing around the idea of changing the oil every 8K miles, but changing the filter every 4K miles.
I did not change the oil the day I got the truck, but every new vehicle I have ever had I have changed the oil at 1K miles and then 5K after that.
As far as checking the oil color, unless the oil is the consistency of tar, you cannot judge the oil by its color or looks.

x2 on what Pikey said about the timing chains, I have heard that before but don't know how valid it is.

How is it way over kill? I have 13/14 year old tahoe with 155k on it. I don't use synthetic either. Its costs me 20/25 bucks every 3ish months... Big freakin deal...

If you like changing the oil in your Tahoe, go ahead, it's still way overkill.

I've been changing oil every 3k for every single one of my cars/trucks/motorcycles since I began owning them. And the way I see it, it never caused any problems by changing it too often. Its cheap enough, so why not?
You did create this thread to get people's opinions right? Not to call anyone who doesn't agree with you "OverKill"
