For oil filter I have settled on (Model numbers left off as I do not know what year your engine is):
Wix XP
Purolater Boss

I use a full synthetic motor oil. Usually Valvoline Advanced, if not available at Walmart then I will opt for SuperTech.

Whatever it says in your chassis owner manual for oil specs (viscosity & API service level) and any major brand of oil filter that matches. Wix, NAPA (they are Wix made), Purolator, and Baldwin are good choices. Bosch too.

Check your owner's manual. I use the Motorcraft oil filter FL 820S and Motorcraft Synthetic Blend at the recommended weight. The choice of which oil to use is up to you.

Make sure you check the latest printing of the manual online. For my 2018, Ford switched from 5w20 to 5w30 between the first and second printing.

If you changing your own oil then it might be a good time to replace the oil pan plug with a fumoto valve. Makes it a lot easier changing the oil in the future.

Fumoto valve for sure. I have a length of tubing I attach to it right into the drain pan. No mess at all. Oil filter is another story. I use a plastic bad over it but usually miss some then onto the axle bit a rag cleans that up.

Agree it will be a mess, I know some who punch a hole or two in the bottom of the filter to drain as much out of it before removing it. Makes it a bit less messy.

All suggestions were great. Went with the manufacturer
Motorcraft oil blend and filter.
And looking for a fumoto valve!

Download the maintenance manual for your model year and buy per its specifications. That is what I do for my Ford diesel truck and Ford F53 motorhome.
