The process of changing oil in any vehicle is very similar. Some are harder than other because of where things are placed and the complexity of different types of motors. However in the 2009 dodge pickups it is a pretty straight forward process. Everything is pretty easy to access which makes for a quick job. This is broken so that even a first time oil changer can get the job with ease. I've included pictures of everything that will be needed including: new oil filter, seven quarts of motorcraft 5w20, funnel, floor jack, jack stands, 9/16 inch end wrench, oil filter wrench, and a oil drain pan.
Step 1: Jack the truck up
Place the floor jack in the center of the front axle being sure that it is in a sturdy position. Jack the truck up far enough so that while you are underneath it is comfortable for you to work. Also be sure to place the jack perpendicular to the front end so that it will not interfere while removing the oil plug and the oil filter.
Step 2: Placing the jack stands
Place one jack stand on the inside of both front wheels underneath the front axle. Adjust the jack stands to the proper height so that if the floor jack would fail you would still be safe. You may have to adjust the floor jack a bit so that the jack stands can be placed securely. This is due to the fact that jack stands unlike a floor jack set at certain heights where as a floor jack will adjust to any height.
