the L that I'm talking about is the standard L adapter that is on every one of the 4.0's that I've seen and probably yours too. What I think you might be looking for is an oil filter relocation kit.
It is a pain in the *** to remove the filter without dripping oil everywhere. Once I get the filter loose, I use a quart size ziplock bag to remove it. once unscrewed, seal the bag and you make much less of a mess. As far as pre-filling the filter, I've never done that on any vehicle I've ever owned, so don't see it as much of an issue with this one. The filter will fill up very quickly once the engine starts. I have had trouble with penzoil filters that some of the mobile express lubes use. It appears that their oil pressure relief valves either don't work, or have a much higher psi release point than some of the others.
this oil change is a piece of cake compared to my mazda miata. picture this, reaching in between the tubes of your header after you've warmed the engine up to unscrew the filter. Yep, plenty of burned forearms on that one. That vehicle definitely could use the filter relocaton kit.
