Tools need to remove the Skid Plate from a Trailhawk:
10 mm socket, 13 mm socket and a t-30 torx bit (Bumper cover to Skid bolts)

Tip for skidplate: remove all bolts but one of the most rearward ones, there are two of them. The rear ones, the holes are slotted in the skidplate. Loosen that one bolt just about all the way. Slide the skid forward from under that bolt head, then back from out from above the bumper cover. To install, slide the skid above the bumper cover, then the slot back to that one rear bolt. It will stay in place to get all the other bolts started.

Thank You Rammer
Easy enough for one person, no need for help (extra hands, blocks, floor jack, ect.).

Take it to my local Moss Brothers Dealership for a lifetime free oil change.

Agreed. I changed oil on my Trailhawk last night and I had to use my legs to steady while I put the bolts in. I'm 5'6" 140, so it was ok for me - plenty of wiggle room. Hand tighten a 13mm and a 10mm on the left side. Slide the plate in and hand tighten a 13mm and a 10mm on the right side. Everything else falls into place. I used Valvoline and Fram Ultra XG10060.

I didn't see this in the DIY section that we have. Can we get this added to the DIY?

Don't forget to buy a 6 pack of your favorite beer! (or favorite beverage). Drinks come in handy while you wait for the oil to drain

BTW, I removed the front skid plate until I need to use it again. This is because it's a pain in the ass to put it back on by yourself (it's kind of heavy), it weights about 50 lbs, so I decided to leave it off to save get better gas mileage. It might not make a huge difference, but it never hurts to drive with 50 lbs less. I will put it back on once winter is back!

Great write up!
How many beers does it take for the oil to drain completely? When I go under I wish to be prepared.

The OP says 12mm socket for the drain plug. My 2015 2.4 Latitude requires a 13mm.

i changed mine last week as well at 5000 miles and its was pretty simple, i have found that the GEMA engines all laid out the same and a breeze to change the oil on.i was going to take it to the dealer but they wanted 80 bucks and possibly more so i spent under 50 bucks and did it in 30 mins.

i installed a K&N filter this afternoon and i am curiously if it will help or hurt it. the K&N is about a quarter of the size of the stock filter which had an actual piece of foam type sos pad. I have 5400 miles right now just to give you mileage dirtyness comparison. i also showed the K&N box next to the old air, the K&N moved around pretty good in the box so its not an exact size comparison.
