SPE metal oil pan swap

Got the metal oil pan to swap the plastic one out....should be changing the oil and knocking out the swap tomorrow. Going with Rotella 5 40 synthetic since I couldn't find the valvoline tru blue(in the few stops I made before I said hell with it)

Yah, usually with vehicles the next model year run starts halfway through the previous year or around there. So technically halfway through 2012 would be MY 13. Your late 2012 was probably manufactures between 01/12 and 06/12.

Could have sworn the build date was 9/12. I'll have to check the door tag.

Got the pan swapped out. SPE kit is all factory ford parts but saves you a couple bucks getting it through them. I feel better now about accidentally having something hit my pan...better dented than cracked. I did however have a bolt snap or jump threads on the install...when they say 10 ft pounds they mean no more for sure! Seems to be holding and no leaks yet, will see. This was the first time I have done the oil change on this truck myself...what a mess! Never changed a diesel before and that's a lot of oil and it comes out fast.
