The oil filter on a Lexus GX460 is a cartridge type filter located at the bottom front of the engine. It is difficult to see without removing the front engine undercover, which is basically a steel plate shield held to the vehicle by 4 bolts. Once the shield is removed, the oil filter housing is visible right behind and just above the stabilizer bar. The housing is positioned sideways and a large pair of channel locks can be used to unscrew the black housing cap. Make sure you have a drip pan ready because a fair amount of oil will drain once the cap is removed. After the cap is removed, it's a simple matter of removing the cartridge filter with your fingers and popping in the new one. A new rubber o-ring should be included with the replacement filter.

nazof is exactly right. Totally disregard emissionwiz and clint_carter. I have the exact same vehicle and have changed the oil and filter myself. The filter is located right in the middle, almost up against the firewall, after you pop the plastic engine cover. You must twist off a plastic cap and then pull the filter (a cartridge type) straight up and out. There are two replacement rubber rings that should come with your replacement filter. One goes on the plastic cap (just above the screw threads) and the other much smaller one goes at the end of a plastic rod that is connected to the cap.
