If I'm slow doing it, it might take 10 minutes.
I've never paid a dealer to do it because it's easy to do if you are the type the likes to do your own maintenance.

A Dealer charges my dad at least $100 for the filter change on his truck.

This video applies to LB7-LMM for sure. I think LML and later use a different style filter.

Thank you. Good video for those who have done it and those who have not. Wheel well door really makes access easy. Even though I have done this numerous times it's a good refresher to jog my memory. Everyone should know how to do this as bad fuel will put you on the side of the road quickly. I always carry an extra filter.

LML still uses that filter. L5P does not

They are easy to change but takes me more than 10 minutes just to drop the fender well. Now the L5P's are real easy.

The Ram/Cummins guys could really use that access door to access that pesky oil filter.

Access door in the fender well is a huge time saver.

I just remove the passenger side battery for access. I just changed the filter on my 2006 LBZ for the for the 20th time so I've pretty well got it down now.

Good idea. :-)

I had an LBZ concurrently with my LMM. LBZ was easier. I could also pull the filter out the top.
