2 micron Fuel filter

I have read threads on fuel filters on here but still have a few unanswered questions. I figure that a 2 micron system should be my next investment to protect my truck (then possibly a bypass system). I was looking at the Cummins Cat fuel filter kit. It looks easy to install although I cannot find any instructions. I would like to stay away from dropping the tank if possible. Any thoughts on this kit or should I get one with a water separator? Do I still keep my factory filter in place with these kits?

Those people ripped me off. My kit came incomplete and they will not return my calls or e-mails. They only list it good for the 5.9 also. The mounting will not work anywhere for me. There is a cross member in the way of where its suppose to go on my rig. I can not try though because its incomplete. I am currently in Pay Pal resolution with them.

I am going to get it from here when I get my money back from them,

That kit looks good with the water separator. It is cheaper also. I guess I will climb underneath when the rain stops and figure out where to mount it so I know what fittings to get. I guess you still need to find lines with that kit right?

The line to connect to is the large line on the top that is 3/8. There is a bolt under the rear seat that can be removed and replaced with a longer one and nut to mount an angle bracket to. I noticed a few other places also. You can call them and they will make up the fittings and hose for you once you get an idea where you are mounting it.

I just order the Baldwin bases, water separator, 2 micron filter and the necessary fittings for a total of $130. Easy enough to make the bracket and follow mounting location instructions found on the XX-fuel web page.

Heck of a lot better than $299

for the guys that have a stock fuel pump. how are you installing these filter heads with the stock fuel lines? is there some special fittings to buy or are you replacing all the metal fuel lines with rubber lines? i just wanna figure out how to plumb in the filter head with the stock metal fuel line.

I too would prefer a bolt on kit considering I would be doing this on a Saturday and most likely would not have the parts I need and the decent parts store is closed on Sunday.
