Oil Filter location

Ok so who came up with the bright idea on where to put this oil filter on these trucks. Was driving along a rocky Right of way and put a hole in the filter with a rock. This thing shouldnt hang down where they do on a "work Truck. Has anyone else had an issue with this. I am glad it happend where it did or I would have been up a creek. Only an hour trip to get another filter and swap it out in the field.

There is a company that makes skid plates specifically for our trucks, because of that problem.

Do you have the name of the company? I am off road 50% of my time with my truck and dont want this to happen again. I am not usually in rock like this but you never know and if it had been a big hole the end result could have been alot worse.

I parked the truck and left it running. I backed out and saw the oil slick. I didn't loose but 2 quarts with the leak. It was still on the dipstick when I checked it.
