Thanks again all. I was only kidding (due to high disgust level) about Jiffy lube.
My 2wd TRD has the skid plate- a small drag to get on and off- but I'm glad it's there.
I did use a rubber hose, right into a sterile can. I left it there about 15 minutes, but when I removed the bannister, there was still about 1/3 qt running down my arms.
And yes, I always use synthetic oil- this truck is really only a tow vehicle for the airstream, so things can get hot.
Oh well, I've recovered now and won't have to face this again for awhile- and I'll know more about how to do it.
Also, I don't get the mid-oil change filter replacement. Unless your engine is shedding metal, or you live in a dust bowl, it's hard to imagine the filter would get clogged half way thru an oil change. Standard procedure with the old BMW motorcycles I play with is to change the filter every OTHER oil change.
