Motorcraft filter is what I use. He probably used conventional rotella 15-40 so I would use that. Walmart is cheapest around me.

Ford recommends Motorcraft filters, I've got a Purolator on there right now. I'm going back to Motorcraft next time. Rotella 15w-40 is good. I've heard if you're in real cold weather you should put 5w-40, but don't quote me on that.

Remember, you're going to need 4 gallons of oil. And you should have a quart left over.

Does anyone use the mobil 1 DT 5w-40?
It can get down to zero sometimes here in the midwest. Like lakipolitis just said and some other forums, have been talking about better flow with the 5w-40 when cold.

5W-40, by designation, flows better cold. So yea, it'll help.
I think quite a few use Mobil 1

I'm an Amsoil dealer so I run that, but I have also run Rotella T6 and oil reports said my truck loved it. I only use Motorcraft filters. There is no expense spared in the filter dept at Motorcraft.
