Oil Drain plug lacation

Sorry if this is a real stupid question.I have an '05 GC Limited with 5.7l engine.I always do my own oil changes(this is my 4th Cherokee) but I crawled under the car and can not find the oil drain plug(DUH). Can somebady clue me in as to its location? TIA

The plug is on the passenger side of the pan, towards the rear of the pan. Easiest if you take off the plastic skid plate, loosen the front (2) 13mm bolts, and remove the rear two bolts then slide it forward and drop it down. This gives you access to the pan and filter area. Good luck getting the PITA filter off. Wix filter is 51085, and you'll need 7 qts of 5W20.

Mine has the skid plate and mine is aligned with one of the access holes. Quite convinent actually! And the little flter drain lip keeps the oil from dumping onto the frame cross member.. Actually easier than my 4.0 6cyl because its all done from the bottom. I do wish it had a larger filter.
