I believe ALL Tundra V8 Models years 2000 thru 2005 have the oil filters in the same location. Therefore it is located on the drivers side front bottom of the engine. It cannot be seen without removing a very simple Plastic(4X2) or Metal(4X4) skid plate. Once the skid plate is removed (8-9 12mm bolts and two plastic push-pull buttons then slide toward the rear to unhook "watch your head") the filter it very visible and accessible. Remember when changing oil filters DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!!! once the new rubber gasket makes contact with its seat only turn 1/2 to 3/4 turn more and never use a wrench. Good Luck!
