Wal Mart is a good source for the Motorcraft oil filter. Also, the Shell Rotella T6 and Wal Mart brand of DEF are god prices.
This site sells most of the Motorcraft items at fair prices. The foam pre-filter doesn't need replaced every time. The manual says to use the air restriction gauge to identify when the air filter needs changed
The restriction gauge, located on the upper
housing of the air filter assembly, measures
the vacuum inside the air filter. The more
the air filter is restricted (dirty, clogged),
the higher the vacuum reading.
Check the air filter restriction gauge
whenever you open the hood to perform
general engine maintenance or at least
every 7,500 miles (12,000 km). If you
operate your vehicle in extremely dusty
conditions, check and reset the gauge at
least every 500 miles (800 km), or two
weeks, whichever comes first. Change the
air filter when the restriction gauge reads
near the change filter line and the gauge
is yellow. If you allow the restriction gauge
to reach maximum restriction you can
affect your engine performance and fuel
Note: Do not blow out the air filter element
with compressed air since the compressed
air could damage the filter paper.
Note: Do not rely on filter appearance
alone. A filter which appears to be dirty may
actually have several thousand miles
(kilometers) of life remaining.
After installation of the new filter element,
reset the gauge by pressing the reset
button on top of the gauge.
Change the axle fluid anytime an axle is
submerged in water.
Rear axles and power take-off units with
synthetic fluid and light-duty trucks
equipped with Ford-design axles are
lubricated for life; do not check or change
fluid unless a leak is suspected, service is
required or the assembly has been
submerged in water. During long periods
of trailer towing with outside temperatures
above 70°F (21°C) and at wide-open
throttle for long periods above 45 mph (72
km/h), change non-synthetic rear axle fluid
every 3000 miles (4800 kilometers) or
three months, whichever comes first. This
interval can be waived if the axle is filled
with 75W140 synthetic gear fluid meeting
Ford specification WSL-M2C192-A, part
number F1TZ-19580-B, or equivalent. Add
friction modifier XL-3 (EST-M2C118-A) or
equivalent for complete refill of
Traction-Lok rear axles. See Capacities
and Specifications (page 300).
