So this is my first oil change on my new truck .I picked up some Castrol 5w30 & a K&N Oil filter. I removed the oil plug and drained oil ,then I searched for the oil filter ,and all I find is a polished aluminum capped thing with a strange end and a few screws and nuts on the end. Is this the filter ,and how do I remove it ? Thanks for any help!!

Is anyone else curious on what the OP was actually looking at when he thought it was the oil filter?
You could always be ghetto and wrap your arm in old news paper to keep it from getting cut.

For future use thou, you can use some door edge molding on the opening. Basides that, it is just easier to remove the skid if you have the time. It helps when cleaning up after the oil change since the little run-off plate doesn't really work.
