HELP! Oil filter part number

Just changing the oil on my 2010 KK, picked up a napa (wix) 7045 filter, however it does not seem to be the same as the one I took off. I can't find any other listing numbers for a filter... would the tow package have a different filter??

The one I took off is shorter than the 7045, and the threads seem larger. Am going to try to find my micrometer to measure, but don't want to risk bunging up the threads if it isn't correct. Any advice would be appreciated!

Sorry folks... nevermind. Once I calmed down a bit I noticed both filters had a 22 stamped on the top... obviously both M22 threads... the old one just looked bigger because of a band around the outside of the threads. And the old filter was a Valvoline 105... I'm assuming the filter is smaller because it was a universal style from whatever quick lube the previous owner took it to.

I have to say I'm not a fan of the filter location, but the engineers did a good job with that little plastic drip tray!

One related question tho... should the drain plug have a gasket on it? It was pretty tough to get off... I think the oil pan was flexing from the torque needed to loosen it! Makes me wonder how thick the oil pan is... a good portion of mine is pretty rusty, so I'll be keeping an eye on it for pinhole leaks I think!

Yes, the plug bolt should have a gasket on it. Here's an image borrowed from google:

Don't work on '10+ 3.7's(might have changed in '09),they went to metric threads so you'd need a filter that cross references with a PH500.
