Its located in the valley of the motor. If you have the factory plastic engine cover on your truck then it is right under that. It round with a plastic lid with a imputed 1/2" square that you can remove with a 1/2" drive extension and ratchet.

Kevin get a big, I mean big pan and slide it under the engine! Push the yellow leaver to drain the filter housing on front left of housing. (water drain for water and fuel sepater). The lay a big screwdriver between to ears on the top of filter. Then turn counter clock wise and it will spin out! Then spin the new one in with new O ring! There easy to change. Alot better then Chevy and dodge. I change mine every 5,000 miles but most people do them 15 to 20,000 miles. You can skip the draining the filter part but it does some time make it easier to come out!

well, i changed my fuel filter. pretty easy. i like the replacement one that i got for it. it is just kind of all one piece..., that is the black cap is attached to it and you just use a 1/2" drive to tighten or loosen it.
didn't have to do a pan under it when i changed it.., just pulled it up in the desert where i live in the dirt.
