new fuel filter assembly, anyone have one yet

I went to the dealer a few months ago to get a new fuel filter and they said something about they are discontinued and they have a new style and it cost me $75 for the new assembly, instead of just changing the filter and throwing it away the new one you just unscrew the canister and pull the old filter out and slide the new one in and screw back in. I have not heard anyone mention anything about this, does anyone have this new style on there truck or are they the old style where you just throw the hole thing away and replace it.

there has been a few threads on these. Said that the new filters are like 5 microns instead of 7. Seems like chicken caca to me that Dodge would discontinue a filter then charge us extra to upgrade to the new one

Cummins made the change , not Dodge. TDR also has sent emails a long time ago to members covering just that subject. I'm not real fond of it , but manufactures always make these type of chances.I looked and realize I trashed the email other wise I would share it with you. Seems to me it came out in Sept. or Oct.

I have not changed my filter yet,but I have two of the newer style filters from Cummins. I will be changing them in the spring. This will be around 30,000 mikes, I change my diesel fuel filter every 10K.
I ordered the newer style 5 micron filter from Geno's. This last order from Geno's, I ordered the filter and housing along with a new replaceable filter. There is a cost savings of $10 by just replacing the filter and not the housing and filter. Per the TDR website the newer style filter is a little smaller in size and will not cover the entire filter base plate were the filter screws on.
I always purchase two filters at a time, one is carried as a spare in the truck at all times. I will then order two more from Geno's when I change that filter. This way I will always have spares when I need one.

Has anybody taken a look at incorporating the 2010 fuel filter onto our 6.7's? That is a top loader with replaceable cartridge. looks interesting.

That top loader looks to be much easier to dink with. Wonder if its a hard conversion?
