    I use this setup if it's a little tight. To me, oil change on my Raptor is easy peasy. Wouldn't wish an oil change on my son's 2007 Tundra on my worst enemy!

    Just an FYI, once you get the stock one off. You can just replace it with a KN Racing filter. It has a 11/16 or so nut welded on the end. EZ to get a box end wrench or socket and ratchet on. Never have to fight it again

    I went to Autozone and got a 74/76 socketed adapter yesterday for $8. Should hopefully do the trick next time around. I'll see if it loosens with that before I actually commit to draining the oil - if I had realized it was that tight beforehand I would have gotten the tool first.

    It's not a difficult oil change outside of the mess it makes.

    First oil change makes you feel like a rookie. Filter was gorilla tight from the factory but after that, hand tight is perfect. No leaks.

    Get a Fumoto valve. Drain right into an empty jug. Have 2 pans ready for the oil filter trough. Mine usually comes out the rear.

    I use a simple band type tool. Similar in principle to the tool above in he post by Metalwhiz, but mine has an integral handle. Works just fine for me.

    Back in the day we would stab a long screwdriver threw it and that usually worked, but boy have times changed, no room to get to anything.

    I'm still trying to wrap it around my head that cars/trucks come without dipsticks and you have to rely on a sensor to tell you on your dash how much oil you have. Ahhh the good old days.

    Has anyone watched any of the YouTube videos of oil filter comparison`s ? Kinda scary what's out there....

    Not scary at all when using Motorcraft oil filters.....

    Yes, the link was posted in #13 above. Mine is a little different but works on the same principle.
