F-350 6.7 drivetrain maintenance

I just bought a 2014 F-350 Platinum 6.7 diesel with the single rear tire and it is my first diesel.
What should be done maintenance wise ..... how often do I change the oil and what about the fuel filter?
It is 4x4 .... is there anything I need to do on a regular basis?

THANKS FOR ANY TIPS!

Did it come with an owner's manual and diesel supplemental manual? Those will give you the basics of when to change oil, filters and servicing other areas. If you do not have a copy, you can download them here.

Also, i would create an account on the Ford owner's site. It can give you info about recalls or field service actions or other items.

You can also down load the Ford App FordPass. It has an abbreviated OASIS report of work/maintenance performed by a Ford dealer.

Some people still change oil at 5K intervals and other let the intelligent oil life monitor tell them when a change is due. Now days most all CK-4 oils are approved for use by Ford. You can check here to see if an oil is approved or not on the Ford WSS-M2C171-F1...

Oil/oil filter changes along with fuel filter changes are the most frequent things you will do.
