Great overview for your maintenance.
Here is a few ways to make your next oil change easier.
1. By a FOMOTO valve that will replace your oil drain plug. I have one that I attach a long clear hose and drain into any containers. You can stop by turning the valve off to change containers. I use my wifes old bleach bottle and liquid fabric softener and even some of her gallon jugs of tea she buys.
Here is a link to the page for the Ford F-53 V10 Fumoto Valves.

2. I have a friend who has a diesel pushed and he gave me a spout that normally comes with the DFI fluid he buys at the service station in Gallon jugs. The spout easily attached to any oil quart, gallon 5 qt jugs.
When you have it on you just squeeze the jug and the oil will expel out the funnel and into the filler tube of the engine.
Here is a generic jug with the attached funnel that screws onto it.
Hope these suggestions help you and others.
