Change my own oil for the first time.

Yup finally got around to doing it myself, never did it before because I always had free changes from the dealers. Well enter my new (old)truck. I thought it would have been expensive going to have it changed, so I figured I give it a go. $230 later its complete. Called a friend for some part numbers I didn't have. So I went and picked up my fram oil filter, motorcraft fuel filter and 4 gallons of Royal Purple High Perf. 15w-40. Man way easier than I thought. But I did manage to drop the old oil filter into the bucket full of dirty oil. Does old oil have any medicinal skin purposes?

One more thing I knew I could do myself, and now know I can. Next up foil delete .

ENGINE:
AFE Stage 2
4 inch down pipe
Straight Pipe'd to 7 inch stack
Edge tuner, soon to be custom tunes

Everything else:
8 inch Lift
40x13.50 Geolander M/T's
18x10 Hulks
F/R Bumper Connection bumpers
IPF flood lights
Glow shift Quad pod
ISSpro's EGT, boost, T-temp, volts

first of all, i wouldnt put a fram filter on anything i own. even a pos car. they're a joke.
two how the hell did you spend that much money.
three thats some over kill oil but if you can afford that go for it.
i only run motorcraft or mobil1 oil filters and wix or motorcraft fuel filters. IMO.
oil right now i have motorcraft. its simple n cheap.

I think I'll keep paying $83.00 to have someone else change it.

Man I thought $70 was high. You know whats worse than dropping the filter in is, when you drop the plug in there and forget where it went for 30 mins.
