    Did my first (own) oil change last week. $30 in oil (Walmart sale) for 6 qts, $11 AcDelco Filter.. Easy as the the oil filter is on top in a canister style housing.

    The fuel filters (2) are on the frame rail and is driven by an electric lift pump.. so once you swap them priming is easy. Filters were $30 for both.

    Truck now has 15,800 miles on it. My 3rd service as the first two were free by the dealer.

    Personally, I would have used Wix over ACDelco for my oil filter.

    No, you have to use Dexos2 oil for this.

    This is all walmart had on the shelf that would work..

    I got it from @RockAutoLLC .. I've also had good luck with the factory filters. I'm not sure which is better than the other?

    Nice Jeff. Just as easy as the 6.6 Duramax?

    Somewhat easier.. as the oil filter is up top, so you don't have take the old one off and catch the oil falling out, with the one on top just wrap shop towel around it and trash it. I wouldn't say much difference. The fuel filters are 100% easier though as they are on the frame rail and prime themselves.. :D

    No, it just drops in.. but, you have to "push" it in place basically. Then screw the cap back on.
