Oil change socket question

First time changing oil myself on my 05 and had a question. I have all the oil, filters and fuel filters. I just don't have the 36mm socket for the frame rail fuel filter or the oil filter. It appears that no one owns a 6.0 around town because no auto parts store sells the low-pro socket I need. Our local sears sells a 36mm metric 12-point socket, but will that work? Or should I just wait to buy one offline? Below is a picture of the kind they sell. Let me know, and thanks in advanced!!

Should still work. If you are uncomfortable with it just buy it, use it, return it, and buy the one online.

I use a 36mm socket 1/2" drive, but I tend to use my 36mm wrench more on the oil filter.

Thanks for the input guys! It worked like a charm. I did the oil filter and fuel filters this weekend. It wasn't as hard as I expected. Next time I am going to use the 5 gallon bucket for the oil though, as the 15 quart drain tub didn't keep up as expected.
