I feel stupid I've changed the oil on my ranger a few times, havent had it that long, but I've always put 5w30 in it. The first time i went to change my oil and filter i couldnt reach it from the top so i was looking around and noticed I could get it from the wheel well, some times its a PITA to get the threads started with these short arms.
