You talking about a quick drain?

What sort of adaptor are we talkin about here?

I'm guessing there's some type of adapter that screws into the block that you attach the filter too correct? I know that Chrysler used this setup on some models where oil filter clearance was an issue.

what is the exact year of the truck? engine?

If it is a 94 or earlier it is most likely a throttle body injected engine. which means there is no adapter to my knowledge.

If it is 95/95 or later it will have the vortec v8 engine. that means you will need an oil filter adapter gasket set.

Screw off the oil filter, undo the oil cooler lines (if equipped), then take out the bolts holding in the adapter. Use the appropriate gasket. Then reverse disassembly.

Be careful with the oil line quick connects if you have those. they are tricky to take apart. And hard to explain on here.
Shoot'em close. Less to pick.
