I've done this several times and make almost no mess whatsoever.

Yep, that's the way I do it too! Works like a charm!

Or use an old 2-liter bottle. Cut the bottom off. Slide it over and unscrew the filter. I haven't done this yet on my GC but have used this technique before in other vehicles. You can reuse the bottle too.

Good idea will have to try that. I use the "bag" method as well now. Helps but I still have some clean up to do after. Usually I just plan on cleaning my under carriage at oil change time. Spray it down with degreaser and give it a go with a light stream from the power washer.

I took the filter "ramp" piece out. I found it got in the way and still made a mess in the process.
