If you guys have ever changed your own oil its really not a big deal. Until this truck! What were you engineers thinking in that design. First you must remove skid plates galore. Then locate this really funny looking yellow penis plug. That's what it looks like when removed. That's my drain plug. Plastic? Then you need to trigger the release pin to back it out. So if you haven't attempted this then think twice. The reason I do this myself is the dealer will just leave the skid plates on and drain oil all throughout your truck. First oil change on this truck took me 4 hours. Lmao! Fun Fact/ these engines use 6 quarts 5w30.
