Default drain plug location

I'm doing an oil change on a '08 F-150 4x4. I've located the filter, and I think I found the oil drain plug. Its on the back of the oil pan at an angle, right? and the oil pan is the black think just behind the cross member that is just behind the front wheels, right?

I don't wanna drain something that isn't the oil.

You'd have better luck posting in the 2015-2016 section.

Wow.. If you don't know what bolt to remove to drain your oil I don't think you should be changing it yourself..

I remember the first time I ever changed oil years ago, I wondered the same thing. But, if you want to do it yourself, you have to start somewhere. It's also better to ask questions rather than make a mistake.
