its in the oil pan, you have to remove the big plug in the bottom. I only had to deal with once and it was a 20 min ordeal including two pairs of vice grips (one broke) a BFH and I recommend keeping small children and little old ladies away..... :spank:
Have Fun! :thumbup:

Do i have to drop the whole oil pan? if so that gonna be a very big pain in my *** ay?

no its just a plate about 4-5" round I think with a bolt head molded in to the center, if it was oiled properly before installation it *should* come out easily

Turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and check for the oil filter behind the vented cover just in front of the axle shaft. I think this is where they put them. They move them around all the time. Good luck!!
