    Just bought a 2005 Tundra access cab, TRD, 4X4. Decided to change the fuel filter and it is not located on the left frame rail near the transfer case as everything I've found indicates that it should be. Anyone know of any alternate locations?

    04 was the last year for a frame mounted filter.

    Sooo, do you know if they've eliminated it or just use the same set up as the 2nd Gens?

    They use a strainer/filter on the pump itself, I would assume similar to the 2nd Gen but I can't say for certain.

    2005 is when they went to a plastic gas tank which eliminated rust, therefore, no fuel filter.

    I wonder how they thought to safeguard against dodgy fuel sources where an owner may not be able to verify the cleanliness of the fuel.

    Kind of what I was thinking Wynnded..... any number of contaminants can be introduced to the fuel tank in any number of ways. Mine will have a fuel filter soon.

    I'd be more concerned about water than anything. I pulled the original pump from my Dakota when it was 18 years old and the plastic tank had nearly no crud in it, as in a quarter paper towel wiped it all up with room to spare.
