Very good ... easy oil changes ... but is the head of that filter too exposed to a sharp piece of metal kicking up from the road and gashing a hole in it?

I don't think so. No more likely than a sharp piece of metal getting kicked up and puncturing the oil pan. There is a heavy cross member in front of the filter and it also is mostly nestled in a semi circular cavity formed by part of the oil pan and lower engine block. Hard to tell from the angle I shot the picture from.



I suppose, one could install a make shift skid pad in that area to protect more if desired. But then access to the filter and more to do when changing oil.
