Default changed my oil for the first time and......

it went suprisingly well. had nightmares about trying to remove the factory oil filter. my tacoma had one that i messed with for half an hr before it finally came loose and after reading a couple posts about tight filters i was a little leary to change my oil the first time . filter was tight for sure but it came loose after i was able to get a good angle to push the rachet really hard. ( i had a filter wrench that fits on end of filter and attaches to ratchet) worked alot better than i expected. only issue i had was the rubber gasket came off filter and was stuck on the engine but that came right off . just ment one extra trip back under the truck. while i was at it i dusted the engine bay too. wiped it all down with a little simply green and a shop rag. looks brand new
