    i do mine myself, but jiffylube or ezlube would probably be okay. they usually always send out coupons in the mail, and unlike most dealerships where they take your vehicle out of sight, at one of these drive-thru lube places, you can watch them perform the work.

    again, i'm a big advocate of diy cause i know it will get done right, but the places mentioned do millions of oil changes and should be suitable if you're not willing to diy.

    Basically, I was under the truck today, I'm a big guy, I dont have lifts or anything to put the truck on so I barely fit under there .. I saw where the oil filter was and where the nut to drain was .. I cant really get under there though .. a friend at work said He'd do it for 10 bucks . . Probably will just go that route

    I normally do it myself, only if I'm extremely pressed for time do I let someone else do it.

    go to autozone or one of your local autopart's stores and buy a Rhino Ramp. Two different weight limits; one can hold up to 8000lbs. and the other can hold up to 12,000lbs. they are $35 and $45 respectively.

    I also change my own. It's just something I don't mind doing. In fact, I rather enjoy doing it. Plus it gives me satisfaction of knowing it was done right, and with the oil of my choice. :thumbs:

    What happened at the dealership?

    I've usually get mine changed there because I have free oil changes.
