Oil filter and oil 2005 ram diesel

I have been going to the dealer for the change since they will do it for $39.95, but they are to busy for me to get in so I am thinking about changing my own. What is the filter number. Is rotella fine to use? Any suggestions?

changing your oil is pretty simple on these trucks... i cannot remember the filter # of the top of my head but if you go to autozone you can look it up pretty easily..... i run the valvoline premium blue (cummins formula) and you can get that at autozone as well...

I use Fleetguard Filters with Rotella Oil. 13 quarts of Rotella= $30, Filter= $8, Peace of Mind by doing it yourself= Priceless.

I use those drain pans from Wal-Mart. I have a few and just switch if one gets full during draining. If one of those drain pans is empty it will hold all of the oil. Just might not drain fast enough . Spilled a lot in my driveway.
