    After I did my first oil change, I knew I was going to break the plastic piece of shit somehow. Well...I did. I do not know why the would put a plastic one on the truck but they did. After some research I found they made a metal one that fits. Popped on amazon where toyota has a store, and got this guy for pretty cheap. Only thing I had to do was put the tundra tube into the housing as it is longer than the one it comes equipped with. I am a lot more confident in this cap and do not now why they didnt equip these vehicles with it in the first place.

    Highly recommended.

    Switched out mine on the first oil change. Didn't break the plastic one during removal - just didn't like it.

    I'll be doing this to my 2014 Tundra when its time for my first oil change. I'll do a wright up. I understand that it requires some modification. Can't believe Toyota put such a cheap part on such an important and frequently used item... :annoyed: I hope this is not a new trend...

    I'm sure Toyota knew they could make some more cash on the side by selling the others rather than including them. Its a universal trick done by the greedy.

    Swapped mine for the aluminum one on the first oil change. Think I paid $25 for it. Well worth it!

    Not nearly enough room here!
    The recently eliminated Driver's side grab handle comes to mind.
