2008 Radiator drain plug. Where is the thing?

Trying to install enine coolant filter and instructions say drain 2 gallons of coolant from radiator. This would not be a problem but I cant find the drain for the radiator. I must be blind or stupit. Can someone help the blind? Thanks, KT

Drivers side of the radiator. Lay under truck and find the lower intercooler boot. Now look at the frame. The drain is just on the other side of the frame and up. It will make a mess if you don't have heater hose to put on the little drain nipple.
