4.0L oil filter relocation

Is there a kit for relocating the oil filter on the 4.0L engines? With my skids on, getting the filter out of the stock location is tough without spilling it everywhere.

I'm doing that now, I'm mounting it on the right side just in front of the motor mount on the block. There are three holes in the block and a friend made a bracket for the filter mount. I'll post photos when I install it this weekend. I got the universal kit from Jegs.

The jeep filter is just a short version of the FL1A/Ph8A ford filter that was used for many,many years. If you can find a kit for a Ford that uses this filter it will fit your Jeep.

I don't mind a little dripping out, but it is really tight on the Jeep to snake a full filter down through everything without dropping it.

I was just curious as to whether a universal kit would work...not as to if it was tough to do or not.

What about taking it off from above? That's how I do it!

I've thought about it but never tried it. Might do that next time to see how it does.
