As far as oil and filters go I would recommend going with an Ford OEM filter as they are usually engineered more precisly for the needs of the make. However Fram does make a good filter. As far as oil goes, I would recommend using a high mileage oil. If the vehicle has always run on standard oil stay with it in a high mileage blend. This being said I am a fan of sythetic blends especially the Mobil extended protection blends. As far as additives go, if you are looking to get a little less friction and more performance out of your truck, I would recommend trying the Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer. Add it in place of one quart of oil. It has a very thick honey like consistency, and is of good use to high mileage motors.
