    Not difficult, but a little messy because of the location.

    30k miles if using B5 or less. 20k miles if using >B5.

    Easy to change, just messy. Easier if you've got air suspension than if you don't.

    Yep pick any of those from Shawn and you had better make sure it meets FCA specs or you will be footing a very large repair bill if your engine blows up! The very first thing you WILL have to provide is documentation of all oil changes. This includes receipts for the filter and oil and when you show them a receipt for a non Mopar filter they are going to ask for the specs on that filter. I am not saying these filters do not meet or exceed Mopar specs but I don't see anything on those listings that say they do! You had better make sure they do before you buy them!

    Here is a Mopar filter listing you can also get them at the dealer.

    Thanks for pics above. I'd like to replace my own fuel filter. I will have dealer replace oil filter since the opportunity cost of my time is more valuable but if my fuel filter plugs, in an less than ideal location, I would like to know how to change. I probably should carry an extra fuel around with me.

    Um, maybe because we've saved $5 here and there throughout our lives and now actually have $40K to go buy a truck without taking out a second mortgage on the house. Seems fairly logical to me, but I'm old.
