JeepinJim Fram is total garbage. I have a Baldwin filter source there really good.
Don't forget around here (Washington State) all the garbage transfer stations take the used oil at no cost as do most of the parts stores.

scha0786 I did my first one at 2k to get all the fine shavings out. I then change again at 5k to get on my 5k interval for its life.

I had a black stone done at the 2k, there are some metals in the oil (nothing crazy just slightly elevated numbers here). I’ll try and post my blackstone here at some point.

Is first oil change 5k or sooner?

There is a oil monitor system in the truck. It's your call really. I would run it till the alert pops, then go on your own intervals. 5k is seemingly the norm but could be too often. 7,500 is no problem. Your driving habits will determine when the system pops the alert.



Maybe driving the next 15k with a initial change when the system pops the alert, then run 5k, then see when the alert pops a second time.

Ditto, here! I was all prepared for nice, clean oil change on the driveway and when I took that drain plug out it overshot the oil container by 2-3 feet! I was covered in oil and a bit embarrassed!! LOL. So I got a Fumoto...still waiting for it to arrive before I change it again in a few days. Ugh!! Good input from several here, I will definitely be draining into a pail to start to prevent it from shooting everywhere!!

Thought they were made by Racor. Dunno, I know they're better than Fram

Bobsoil I agree totally with luckyduck. Purilator also has a line of synthetic oil filters.

B. Adams I quit doing my own oil once I got my 6.7, but I changed it many times on my 6.4. I'd get my oil in 5 gallon buckets and then use a long snout pitcher with quart and liter marks on the side, up to 6 quarts at a time. It was cheap, easy, and worked great, but I'm fine not doing it myself anymore.

For $17 why not use OE filters??? Yes, only use Motorcraft.
