    Hi all glad to be here. Looking to change my oil and filter to Syn. Looks pretty tight. Any tips and tricks. Looks like it my be easier from the top than underneath?

    This seems to be the impossible task. I don't even bother.

    That is what Roseville Jeep is for. lol3.gif

    Underneath is the only way I've found to get at it. I flex the front bumper out a little to work my hand in, but it is extremely tight. The good news is that there's a channel below that catches all the oil that leaks out and directs it to one spot. I really don't understand why they put filters in such awkward spots like that.
