My truck listed for about that same amount and I've had to change the oil every 7500 miles. Seems like they ought to at least develop a system where the oil will go as long as the transmission...

For me, running overloaded is more a moral and legal issue. I've no doubt that there is adequate payload to "safely tow" with an F250 using the limitations of the F350 that's comparably equipped. ...
