Paxton S/C oil change

The time has come to do my first oil change in my Paxton however I was curious on the best and easiest way people went about doing it, I have a jack however it isn't long enough to fit under the front jack points of the car so I was wondering if there was a different way to do it without me having to buy a new jack. Maybe removing the front bumper? Anyways thanks for the tips.

When I had my Vortech, I know I wouldn't have been able to properly/easily change the oil without being able to get under the car and get a couple wrenches up there - one to hold the hose, the other to loosen the nut. You need to own the proper tools to work on your vehicle, especially with a heavy add-on like a S/C in my opinion. I'd just pony up for a proper jack, then you'll always have it.

Yeah I'm gonna need a proper jack eventually so I might as well buy it now. I was just curious if anyone had any other ways to go about it, thanks though.

The hose off the VorPax units is a tetch too short, so, it's easy to end up slobbering oil all over everything. I got a bit of extension hose and zip-tied it into a handy place i could reach without removing the lower pan abd stuff, just for this purpose.

Ramps baby. If there are none that fit the bill for you, go buy a couple 2x10's, cut them down in steps, screw them together and finish off with a carry handle in the side of each one. Drive up on the ramps, then you'll have the gap needed to get a jack under there if you need it. Jack a side up, remove the ramp for access, and install a jack stand.
