Did the 1st oil change on the Badlands using Royal Purple with a K & N oil filter with the 1" nut welded on the end. I switched to these filters on the Ranger because of the difficulty accessing the filter in the drivers front fender well. Oh by the way the Badlands skid plate weighs 20 pounds and the Ranger is only 15.

Thanks for the report. I'll be doing the 1st change after break in soon. Did you use ramps, or is the Badlands high enough off the ground to get under without them?

BTW, I like to use Wally-world's Super Tech brand--$16 for a gallon jug of 5W30 full synthetic. I also plan to use Motorcraft's FL-400S instead of the 910S. It's a slightly larger filter and allows me to refill the oil with 6 qts even. Measuring out the recommended 5.7 qts is a PITA.
