    Best thing I can say is, don't pull the plug until you find both plugs. Then do the one that's closest to the front bumper, right between the wheels. Not the one that's directly underneath the gear shift.

    There will be a hole in your skidplate to access the oil lug. It can be a bit of a bitch to see.

    Thx for the info..glad I asked, didnt know about the drain line needed for the filter. Thought it was built in to the drain itself. Looks like I am off to the store for some tubing. As for the drain plug, I have never seen a gasket on any other vehicle I have owned and never put one on..is this cool if there is not one one there now?

    There should be one on there now. You can reuse them at least 2-3 times.

    I do, and I don't have any oil leaks. Just check a few days afterwards in case though.

    Crawl under the truck with your head toward the front and give your transmission a big ole' hug. The transmission drain plug will be on your sternum, and the oil drain plug will probably be close to your forehead depending on your height.
