Just run the OEM filters for one. Use the oil you prefer as long as it's up to the Ford standard. Ford provides a pretty extensive list so there's plenty to choose from. Make sure you are changing the fuel filters every 10k or so whatever works for you. Always use a quality fuel additive.

Deleting is optional. Some people will give plenty good reasons to stay stock, some same it helps the longevity of the motor. I can say I don't think there is a wrong answer. It's your call.

How often do you recommend to change the OEM filter. I’m definitely planning on keeping this truck for years to come.

There is an "oil monitoring system" built into the dash message center. This will pop a message when like 500 miles to go (or whatever), then at some point it will say Oil Change Due. Otherwise running 5,000 miles or 7,500 miles is a good oil change interval to use.

For the regen process there's two modes: Passive and Active. Passive happens while driving due to the conditions you are operating the truck. There's nothing for you to do or otherwise. Active regen will pop up a VERY short message on the dash display. You may notice a mild difference in how the vehicle is running. It generally lasts about 50+miles of driving depending on your speed. Just keep driving until the regen is completed is the best idea. There is a center dash display that you can have the dealer add (should be no cost) that shows the DPF% and will be a REALLY good indicator to watch to see when a regen is going to happen.

Manually activated regens are not really suggested to be performed unless absolutely necessary.
