Default Remote Engine Oil Filter?

Has anyone installed one?
Is it a single or double?
Where did you locate it? A pic please.
Thanks!

Not to hard. Get a creeper and roll under the passenger side, look up on the side of the engine and you can't miss it. Tons of space under there!

It's an '06, 4.0 (just like the sig line).
I mounted my remote tranny filter to the outside of the frame rail at the front of the drivers side wheel well. I want to relocate the engine oil filter so it is mounted horizontally instead of vertically. It is just a lot easier and less messy to remove/install a horizontal filter.
I can change the tranny filter w/o even getting on my knees!

I don't know the benefit of a remote filter but the 4.0 needs oil pressure RIGHT NOW on startup. Timing chains use hydraulic tensioners. Chains can flop until oil pressure is up. Local wrench says he has seen 4.0's break chains because a filter without a drain-back check valve wasn't used. I'd need a damn good reason to monkey with the stock filter mount.

I've never heard or read about the check valve issue b4.
I've used Fram filters so far. This last weekend I bought a Fram Tough-Gard filter which by chance has an Anti-Drain-Back valve...
How could I have known?
