    Also interested in this! I find the K&N filters the easiest to use, but it still sucks. Moving the filter would be a lot easier

    just get a filter wrench that fits, its really not that bad once you know how to do it.

    I am well aware of the proper way of changing my oil, as a matter of fact, I never use a wrench to tighten or remove my filter. I am just simply looking for some way to keep my truck, shop, and myself clean while changing my oil. I cannot find any other way to remove the filter without making a mess, then its like the oil gets into every nook and cranny on the way down and takes like a whole can of brake cleaner to remove. I have a nice concrete drive that I don't want oil dribble spots on later either. A relocation kit is not a necessity, but would be a luxury.

    if anyone has found a kit that doesn't leak, post it up. ...apparently most of them do.
