SOURCE: Oil change on a tundra
No special wrench needed for filter.
The oil filter is located in the front of the engine on the right side, down at the bottom.
It's easier to change the filter by taking of the front skid plate underneath. You'll need a 12mm socket to take it off.
If you try to get it from the top, you'll get oil all over the skid plate and have a big mess to clean up. Plus, you may damage the radiator by leaning on it.

you have to remove the front skid plate located at the front of the truck underneath the bumper. It's the big metal plate.

look on the right side of your skid plate, to see if there isn't an opening , in which you can see the oil drain plug. my 2005 jeep grand cherokee is like this also.

Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.
Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.
Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!
Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.
