I picked up a filter socket (the kind that fits a 3/8" wrench, and slips over the top of the filter), and use that now. Works fine. Still end up spilling oil all over the place. Agreed, that it's just not in the best location.

I really like it when I just about get the filter off, then I lose my grip on it and it falls, allowing me the pleasure of a hot oil shower/waterfall on my arm! That makes the experience so much more pleasurable!

I like the oil filter relocation idea. Let us know if you get the kit and where you mount it as I'd be interested too.

I agree that it sucks changing the filter on the 4.7, that's why next time I'm going with full synthetic, at least this way I only have to deal with it every 6k miles! I wonder if using a bigger/longer filter would help out with the grip/position issue? inputs anyone?

Not really, its the location that makes it suck. I do mine every 5k with synthetic.

FYI, I can't Mobil 1 @ Wal-Mart, apparently there's a production shortage due to Katrina. I'm going to try Castrol instead.

Same thing at Advance Auto. I went with Pennzoil Platinum this last time, as opposed to my normal Mobil 1. Still went with the K&N filter, though.

Wow... What's going on with the Mobil 1 supply and Wal-Mart? About 2 weeks ago when I wanted to change my oil, Wal-Mart was all out as well. I ended up going with Castrol Syntec. It was the only synthetic there that was 5W-20. I can't say I feel any difference than with Mobil 1, and the Castrol was a couple of bucks cheaper.
