do they make oil filter guard???

I still cant belive the oil filter location!! after reading one of the threads about the guy loosing an engine due to a stick freaks me out. what is the best product to protect it? I do allot of gravel and back roads hunting and I can see this being the Achilles heel on this truck.

I was thinking the same thing. Didn't really notice the location until I had my 1st oil change last week. The white Motorcraft filter stood out and made it more obvious. I don't do off roading or much gravel travel. I could see a road hazard taking it out.

the first time I had seen it was when I put my 35's on and there is a wire on the side of that long bar your tire rubs on at full lock (ladder bar?) anyway my tire c aught it and pulled it off then 4 inches away is a giant filter. man what a stupid location. i'm still trying to get over not having an oil pressure guage!! and I did think of a remote filter kit but you know ford,if you have any problem they will say that it is a restriction in the oil system that caused it!! well I guess my inner MacGyver will have to come out

the 6.9/7.3L was underneath like that just on the opposite side....they were never really an issue.

The fuel filter housing on the other hand is ridiculous....it hangs below the effin frame.

just get a permacool adapter, and run your own lines, should work assuming it is a spin on filter,

just get the specs for the factory oil filter, thread size. etc..

goes in place of filter


remote mount


then just run high pressure lines,

example of one mounted



jegs/ summit racing sells them, some people use them to run it threw a cooler before the filter

I would imagine the fuel filter hangs there so it can be accessed and drained easily when the WIF light pops on? But cheap plastic and location seem bad!
