under the vehicle you will see a plastic cover under the engine, remove the 4 13 mm bolts and drop the cover (they give you an access port but its cleaner and easier to just take the cover off) the bolt to drain the oil is also a 13mm on the bottom of the oil pan facing the ground. drain the oil, put the drain plug bolt back in and tighten, don't over tighten! the filter is located up the front of the oil pan on the passenger side, only accessible from the bottom, remove the filter let the oil drain, put some fresh oil on the rubber seal of the new filter and install, make sure to follow the directions on the filter because it will tell you how many turns to put on the filter, overtightening will make it extremely difficult to take off next time! after that, clean up any oil left on the frame and oil pan and install the plastic cover with the 4 13 mm bolts, locate the oil fill cap, remove and refill the engine with the right oil (i believe its 5w30) untill it reads full on the dipstick, put the cap back on and start the engine and let it run for about 10 seconds, shut the engine off and recheck the oil level and fill as necessary. (if you have the 4.2 i think it takes 7 quarts, check your owners manual for the oil type and capacity to be sure) remember to turn the key on with the engine off and pump the gas pedal 3 times to reset the oil life indicator after the oil change is done, hope this helps!

If you have the 4.2 liter: looking up from underneath the vehicle you will find an oil filter access door on the passanger side of the skidplate. Take a flat head screwdriver and turn the screws allowing the door to pivot out of the way. Look up through the access door and you will see the oil filter. A 5.3 liter oil filter will be beside the oil pan.

Sometimes it happen that way. I do oil changes at work. Sometime it like you need the jaws of life to loosen them up. Just remember righty tighty, lefty looosy. The problem is the oil filter gasket bakes on to the oil filter housing. So don't worry if you crush the filter in the process. It's just tough to turn at the moment.
When you put the new filter on, put some fresh oil around the gasket. That way it helps it from sticking next time.
