    Do they sell a braided oil conversion kit for my 2003 trd?

    I am 60 yrs old and don't want to pay for such expensive service every 5k,when I can put better oil and filter myself,Thanks ;)

    Not sure what you're asking about ... Do you mean a remote oil filter relocation kit? Or maybe a bypass filtration kit? Both are available aftermarket, but I don't believe TRD ever offered either one under their brand name.

    I want to be able to put oil filter near front of truck where I can easily remove,now I can not do so.

    I want a quality braided hose with connections already made up

    This is a good idea. I will look around and maybe someone else can help out. It would certainly make oil changes easier on our trucks.

    My dealer charges $22 (oil/filter/labor/disposal) and I get the truck washed free.
    This is year around so I don't have to worry about being under the truck in cold weather (Iowa).
    For the price I'd pay for oil/filter and running around buying the material, I can't justify doing it myself.
    Not to mention disposing of the old oil and filter.

    Buying some filter kit that repositions the filter location would take a long time to make it worthwhile.
    Adding more hoses just adds to the possibility of a leak or tearing of a hose.

    Not worth the bother and I'm older than you are. I just take mine to a reputable dealer and let them do the work.
