my first diesel oil change.

ok guys ive put my first 5k on the new to me 6.0, i dont know how long before i got it since it had the oil changed last. so from what i read i think im gonna go with rotella t6 5w40, seems pretty good from what ive been reading. i know to go with the ford/racor filters, but there is only the one on top of the motor in front of the turbo right? no hidden filters anywhere else? any advice will be awesome since im still learning this truck.
thanks, david

Correct. The oil filter is the big one up top.
The little one is the secondary fuel filter. Main one is under the driver seat, inside frame rail.
Main thing you wanna do is make sure to break the seal on the oil filter while the drain plug is out. Otherwise, that quart or so will be left in the filter and housing.

When you need to change the fuel filters 15k max this will help 4x4 have a driveline in the way.

Don't forget the external tranny filter every 30k miles (passenger side, by the radiator).
