Get under the truck, and that vid, as poor as it is, answers all the questions.

But that being said, your post didn't even attempt to help the OP.

the filter is actually behind the radiator on the front right hand side of the motor and far from easy to get at but it is there.

You can see it or you can touch it, but not both at the same time. Lol.

Had some fun watching (from behind the yellow line of course) folks try to find the filter when I take it in for a change. Lots of head scratching. Usually they are proud when they find the trap door for the filter drain.:D

I've had a few girls tell me that too.

I wonder why all the covers on this truck? Maybe to help with wind resistance or just a little protection?
Either way dtm, not a quick or clean process.

I bet a lot of it has to do with the EPA and CAFE...

Most of the belly pans and covers on undercarriages today are to benefit gas mileage. Better managing airflow especially in and around the non-aerodynamic chassis parts and assemblies can produce marginal mileage gains. Thus small gains here, small gains there, all contribute to the end goal.

Best case scenario would be to have air from the front fascia, bumper, grill move air to the sides, and over the hood with none going underneath. With the high stance of a truck that's simply not a reality. A best effort is made with minimal cost to deliver what we see today under our trucks.
