Oil alternates to Motorcraft

Has anyone seen an alternative oil equivalent to the f-150 diesel oil specs? All I can find is Alts for the super duties. I hate going to the dealer for an over priced oil change and don’t trust the quick lubes to be using the correct oil.

Where are you buying the Kendall? I considered it but can't find anywhere to order it from. Probably will just use T6.

Phillips 66 I’m sure is the manufacture of Kendall in the US. I would think Phillips 66 FA-4 5w30 should be available to find

T6 works perfect! I am on my second change using T6 5-40. You can get 3 gallon case on amazon for like 60$.

No I found it used online. Too pricey to buy new in my opinion. Are you in the area?

I'll probably just stick with the T6 since it's easy to find and meets the heavy use recommendations in the manual. Gonna need to change mine in the next few weeks.
