I changed mine last week. Was easy. The star-looking thing is just an 8 point square, 1/2" drive ratchet will work fine.
Seems simple, remove plastic dust shield, remove fitler cover/filter/o-rings, install new filter/cover/o-rings, install plastic cover, start truck, check for leaks, make note in mileage log, drive away. I was worried myself, but it's super easy. Caused myself alot of un-due stress over it...
