Do you still use Fred Haas for service? I moved from them (249 location) to Don McGill Katy...very happy with the change.

Custom Oil Filter Wrench

Check this wrench out. I bought one for $10.50 delivered. It is a high quality tool. If he has any left, it would be worth considering. It won't round off the plastic housing.

Custom Oil Filter Wrench
great idea and design, but be forewarned. I did that same thing using the outside overhanging edges of the cheap black resin composite plastic oil filter housing and snapped one of the 2 sides off very easily. If the oil filter end cap was metal or aluminum instead of black resin composite plastic or whatever cheap material the tundra oil filter end cap is made out of, no problems. But, in time, those 2 tabs can easily break off, trust me, I did it very easily!

LOL! Your right it's supposed to be only 25nm tight which is equivalent to like 12ft/lbs?? Hand tight is what I do, but that damn plastic expands when it's hot and It just makes it harder

Ok, so I just did the oil filter cap mod. The Aluminum one is nice. Quick question to those who have done the swap. Which little metal cap did you use? There is a small metal base that the spring sits on. The one that came with my Tundra has more holes in it than the one that came with the Aluminum one. I chose the one that came with my truck (more holes means better oil flow?). Just curious.

I used my truck's original parts, except for the housing itself.

I changed my oil for the first time on my 2012 last weekend. I also swapped to the Toyota metal housing at the same time. Swapped the internals from the plastic to the metal one (longer tube inside the cartridge filter) and it worked perfect. I can't imagine the plastic housing...GONE.

I do need to order a filter wrench that fits the housing though, that was a pain to get off.

Does the aluminum housing use the same size wrench as the stock plastic one?

Yes, it is identical in every way except it is aluminum. I changed mine. I put a tiny bit of anti-seize on the threads to make sure I could get it back off easily... You won't regret it.

( I actually removed the 1" blocks in the back, the truck is truly level without them and the drive shaft "clunk" went away as the axle wrap was diminished a LOT ).

Exclamation

I've bought both the genuine 'Yota part and the Dorman cHineez knock off one from rokauto. The Dorman one is a cost cutted POS, that I highly recommend no one spend their $$ on. I threw mine in the trash. The Doramn AL metal was heavier than the OEM one and the oil filter shaft was made out of very thin metal, reminded me of aluminum foil, that's how soft and pliable it was! It's not worth the $8 in savings.

Part numbers:
OEM AL cap = 15620-31060
OEM plasteek cap = 15620-38010
OEM plug = 15643-31050
Dorman AL cap = 917016

I think we have the answer here and can now close this thread.
