Oil filter extender/ adapter
 
Hey anyone ever tried throwing on the oil filter extension/ drip sleeve PN-53022350AA that comes on the 2500? I hope it doesn't effect the mds. But damn would it make those filter swaps easier & allot cleaner!

I just use a Kroger 1/2 gal ice cream bucket. It just sits there on the rack&pinion.
I use the orange sherbert but you can get whatever flavor you wish.
P.S. Eat ice cream first!

Oldhp.....any pictures. A remote oil filter would be nice

Well no pictures, its just a 1/2 gallon Kroger ice cream bucket. To me unless you use at least 3/4" hoses and the good free flowing fittings the adapter could be restrictive. I never spill a drop.

I used a PIG Form-a-Filter draped over the steering rack, and hold a plastic shopping bag under the filter. It worked slick.

I'd love to see the suits that design where the filter goes to do an oil change.

LMAO OldHP! I'll be sure to consume the ice cream or sorbet first, otherwise I'd have some explaining to do where I turn my used oil in!

Agree. It really is an assinine ( intentional misspelling!) design. They should've put in a remote filter mount like in my old '97 expedition. Filter change was a snap on that. No mess at all since you could drain the oil out the lower edge of the filter.:smiledown:
