Oil filter location 2011 V6 4.OL

I know this may sound easy but where is the filter located in a 2011 Double Cab 4.0L V6 1GR-FE. Visually I don't see the normal filter on the sides but by the drain plug and Oil dipstick sump is a black cover with 12 bolts. Is the filter internal to that pan?? Any help is greatly appreciated, owners manual does not help.

Thanks Coastie, I checked and did not see that. I did see that in a web search as well but not on this Tundra. I will keep searching and hit the toyota service dept if I have to. Appreciate the help though. Broj10903

Take the skid plate off... Should be covered by that... not sure if its a spin on or not. It may be the canister style like the v8's

Coastie, My setup is different. I don't have the oil housing right in front of the fill cap. I don't have http pics set up and I can't paste. Also the engine I have is 1GR-FE.

The 2007 does have the housing in the pic you showed. But on the same site on the 2011 model the housing is not there. Thanks for the time though.

Thanks Jake, your right. I climbed under and saw it but will do the work tomorrow. Looks like a 3/8" drive to remove the outer cover but I should be able to figure out the rest when I get the plate off. Thanks so much for the help. Brian
