Changed filters today

I changed the engine oil, oil filter, and both fuel filters on my 2019 today. With only 15 K miles on the odometer, it was my first fuel filter change and 3rd oil change on this truck. I was amazed at how clean the frame rail fuel filter appeared to be. Of all the diesel engines I have maintained over the years both personal, farm, and company equipment, I have never observed a filter medium with no visible dirt, crud, or discoloration. The frame rail filter looked as clean as the new one, only wet.
It sure makes me feel good about the new local fuel station where I have bought 98% of the fuel for this truck. I will continue to purchase all my diesel from this business unless I am traveling.
If the filter looks the same after the next change, I am thinking of just changing fuel filters every 20 K miles.
I cycled the key 5 times to purge the system and the truck started without hesitation on the first attempt.
And on a side note, I do not get the ticking or type writer sound after an oil change with this '19 which is a big deal for me. I had a '15 and a '17 that did not develop a ticking after oil changes but I had a '13 that sounded horrible for 1500 miles after every oil change. The '13 had several issues though so the ticking was one of the more minor problems it had.

what kind of oil and filter did you go with?

Also, do you have to pre fill the oil filter because it is so big? I've got 2k on mine and looking to do the oil change in the next week or two

I bought motorcraft filters but still on the fence with valvoline premium blue extreme full syn 5w40 or rotella full syn

Pre-filling the oil filter is a point of discussion. Some will say "must", some say "can". Do what you wish, the 13 qts oil added includes the "dry oil filter". So pre-fill the filter as you want but don't exceed an oil change of 13 qts total.

I always use the Ford Motorcraft filter and T6 Rotella 5w40. Probably doesn't matter but I always fill the filters if they install vertically and will hold oil.

Pre-filling the oil filter when doing oil changes helps to eliminate/reduce the 'dry pump' time the oil pump is filling the filter with oil and therefore not pumping any oil thru the engine. Also why most oil filters have a no drain back feature to them.
I always pre-fill every oil filter. I let the vertical hanging filters soak a bit and usually takes 2-3 top offs to get a 1Qt filter full. Horizontal filters I fill & top off once so there is at least some oil in them and typically not much will run out unless your slow to get it on.

I typically use the box the filter is packaged in, to support the filter while filling it up as 18M outlined, since it takes a few mins for the media to soak in the oil and top off.

I donít pre-fill oil filters mainly because Iím lazy and really donít see a benefit. One thing to consider when pre-filling is that whatever oil you dump in through the threaded hole is entering the engine unfiltered. (Normal flow is outside-in on these.) And no, oil is not finely filtered before it is bottled.

I put 230k miles on my Ď91 F-150, 185k on my Ď00 F-250, have 140k on our Trailblazer and 110k on our Edge to name a few of the higher mileage vehicles I familiar with. None have had any lubrication related engine problems.
