Oil filter help.

Hey guys I've been a lurker for a while, but have made a few posts. This is bothering me. I haven't been into DIY mechanics for long at all, so today I cleaned my air filters for the first time (still hoping I did it right.) I was at Autozone and realized I haven't changed my oil filter and it's an 06. I think it's about time, but I have no idea where to begin since I've never changed oil before in my life (pretty spoiled by my parents and didn't have a drive to learn in highschool days.) I really would like to get to know more about my truck and work on it more, baby needs some love am I right? I've googled how to change oil filter but nothing came up, just hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks for your time -David

Ummm... I hate to sound brutal. But... you may want to just take it to a lube place to get it done and watch them change it for the first time. Take note of the tools they use.

Right up on top of your skid plate. Take it off and you'd have to be blind to miss it. Drain the oil, and change oil and filter all at same time.

Buy a used one from one of the guys on the forums here... a used one is fine. Most filters are good for 100k miles as long as you either blow them out or oil them when needed. Depending on what type you buy. You can get a very nice used one for well under $200. I have the Volant CAI and I love it. Feels like there is so much more power with it. Plus, it adds a deep enging tone when sucking in air.
