No experience w/your specific problem, but might can help a bit anyway w/your method. Not sure if this applies to your truck, but when the oil filter is difficult to remove on my Ford truck I sometimes I have to drive a big screwdriver smack dab through the middle of the old filter, then using the screwdriver as a handle/lever, it is easy to develop enough torque the spin the oil filter off. It does make a bit of mess though.
If laying on the ground is uncomfortable/awkward and using a creeper isn’t a good solution either, I have a big piece of vinyl floor material I lay down on the ground under the car instead. It is very slippery so I can just slide around unencumbered by friction between me and the ground. This is a good solution if clearance between the bottom of the car and the ground is a problem. Another added advantage is that oil spills wipe off the vinyl with little effort or time.
If your wrenches don’t seem to fit the space available, you either have to remove what’s in the way, or buy wrenches that do fit the available space. I often do the latter, and stop working on the car go to the hardware store to get the appropriate sized tool for the job. In really tough no-space cases there’s a set of tools called a crows-foot socket set attachment set that can work wonders in tight spaces. One time I had to resort to buying some long needle nose pliers that were bent at 90 degrees. Wasn’t a pretty sight, but it did the job.
