Yup finally got around to doing it myself, never did it before because I always had free changes from the dealers. Well enter my new (old)truck. I thought it would have been expensive going to have it changed, so I figured I give it a go. $230 later its complete. Called a friend for some part numbers I didn't have. So I went and picked up my fram oil filter, motorcraft fuel filter and 4 gallons of Royal Purple High Perf. 15w-40. Man way easier than I thought. But I did manage to drop the old oil filter into the bucket full of dirty oil. Does old oil have any medicinal skin purposes? :hehe:

One more thing I knew I could do myself, and now know I can. Next up foil delete :thumb:.

first of all, i wouldnt put a fram filter on anything i own. even a pos car. they're a joke.
two how the hell did you spend that much money.
three thats some over kill oil but if you can afford that go for it.
i only run motorcraft or mobil1 oil filters and wix or motorcraft fuel filters. IMO.

Man I thought $70 was high. You know whats worse than dropping the filter in is, when you drop the plug in there and forget where it went for 30 mins.
