    No..the filter is just on the inside of the frame under the truck on the driver side. Right behind the wheelish. Look a few posts earlier.

    I believe this is what you are referring to, the fuel pump filter, it does appear to be connected to the in port of the fuel pump, inside the fuel tank.

    Ah, thank you. The toyotapartsbarn schematic was nowhere near that clear. Looks like a bitch to change. I wonder if anyone has ever done it, and if it's worth doing at any point in the future?

    The one in the tank isnt that bad. Time consuming, yes. When I do it, I remove the bed (have a friend help), as its only a few bolts, and a couple wiring harness's. Then you have complete access to the tank, with nothing in the way. You can go at it right from the top.

    I used a cheap Fram fuel filter when I changed mine. It was a real hassle getting the thing back in. I dont like how Toyota sets it up. Ford pickups are much simpler.

    Either way, $35 for a fuel filter is pretty expensive and many of them are made by the same companies anyway.

    The in-tank filter is really more of a screen than a filter and I wouldnt replace it unless you had to get in the tank for another reason like swapping the pump or something.
