Cut a 2 liter soda bottle and place it under the filter...it'll catch the drips and you could even drop the filter in it. I wished Ram would have designed something to divert the oil drips. I can't remember which car I had that had a little slide ramp that diverted the oil away from components.
I'm also thinking on getting a fumoto valve. Look here: http://www.qwikvalve.com/
Only thing is that there isn't one available for our 2012 Hemis. They have them for the 2009 Hemis only. Does anyone know if the drain plug is the same from 2009 - 2012?
