Just decided to change oil in my 2013 so i crawl under the truck to locate the oil filter, when I found it, I think to myself this cant be?! What kind of IDIOT designed this! HOW THE HELL AM i SUPPOSED TO GET THIS OFF? I can not fit a filter wrench in there I guess I have to buy one of the other kind that attach to a socket wrench??

If anyone has done an oil change on a 2013 RAM 5.7 Hemi 8-speed PLEASE help, there has to be an easier way to do this other than going to have it changed @ dealer!

THANKS TO ALL!

OK, I am an Idiot! I was looking at filter location with the hood closed and from the back of the motor! Removed filter with regular filter wrench from the front of motor with hood open! Not that bad! Easier than my frontier! Guess I should look next time prior to posting and bashing ram!

All good now after 2nd look!
