I don't remove the "skid plate" but, one tip for all: Watch the radiator hose next to the filter on the 5.7....if you nick it with a tool or the "semi-sharp" edge of a filer wrench, it could let go under pressure somewhere not so nice....not much clearence there....

Re: Oil changes - SO easy

Anyone use the quick change ball valves? Just did my first oil change and installed one.

That's the easy part. You must not like the exfoliating properties of 5w-20 oil on your hands and arms. Which brand valve did you go with? I'm thinking of trying it out on my truck. We use the Fut??? ones on our heavy haul trucks at work?

I used the Fumoto valve. I still manage some 5-20 skin treatment from the filter.
