    Crew Cab
    I just traded in my 2005 Tundra on a 2015 crew cab Tacoma. I love it so far. It is now out of factory oil changes. I do my own Oil changes,. And noticed the oil filter is on top of the motor. I also noticed there is a spill tray with a nipple to catch the oil that falls out when you remove the filter. Is there a device available to attach to the nipple to catch the oil, Or any ideas on what I can use?

    I shove a water bottle in there to catch the oil. Make sure you remove the plug if yours is still there.
