Make sure that you only use Motorcraft or Racor filters (Racor is the original manufacturer) and only Motorcraft oil. Very important!!!

Enjoy your new truck!!!

My list would be oil and oil filter, fuel filters, trans fluid and filters if you can't document the last time they were changed, and check the restriction gauge on the air filter.

Not saying that you NEED to do this, but when I bought mine I had EVERY Drop of every fluid replaced and all the filters done. I don't know the previous owner and what he has or hasn't done to take care of it, This probably isn't necessary on an 06 but thats my $.02
