I think that was done about 2 years ago, right after I got my 150 if I remember correctly.

i did a fleet of rangers today for Fios 23 rangers. oil changes and rotations. half way through i noticed that the sizes were different. never did so many oil changes on the same vehicle in a row.

They've been shorter than before for at least 1 1/2 years. If you want a filter that looks like the same length as before, Wix makes an 820S filter that is longer than the Motorcraft filter.
