I would do an early change, like now, and then follow the oil life monitor -- it will tell you when an oil change is due.
For "extra protection" use an extra good oil. I like Mobil 1 Extended Performance because it is a good synthetic oil and reasonably priced at Walmart in 5-quart jugs.
You can also get the motorcraft filter at Walmart, though the Ford racing filter wouldn't hurt.
