Agreed. When it comes to water separation, I'm sure there are advantages to having an upper and lower filter. While the frame mounted filter isn't wonderful, I think they did an OK job of striking the balance between protection/access.

There's a lot of people with aftermarket filter systems that use the frame rail for mounting their setups also. Unless you do a lot of rock crawling you should be ok, I had an airdog on my 06 quad cab short and it was in a nasty spot, never had any filter dent/rock problems. I did carry an extra set at all times though. I hope "RAM" doesn't pull a Ford and stick the customer with the bill every time a negligible amount of water ends up in the fuel and causes the weak injection systems to malfunction and wipe out everything.

Has anybody actually purchased the rear underbody (68197867AA FILTER KI-FUEL/WATER SEPARATOR)? I tried to pick one up but apparently they are backordered...shocking
Not good news if this is THE Primary fuel filter.

I ordered some from factorymoparparts.com and UPS tells me they are on the vehicle for delivery today, so we'll see! I ordered some of the other fuel filter and some oil filters from Geno's Garage the same day, and those showed up 2 days ago.

I suppose this is a different filter than the one for the 2012s with the extreme duty fuel filter option?

I just ordered 2 from factorymoparparts, so we'll see. If not, I'll have to contact GSbrockman's dealer. Mopar Online Parts was backordered.

Check engine light problems

I've got a 2011 (2500) and got it in Sept 2011..all was fine until the turbo had a problem in the winter of 2012. The dealer fixed that and since then every few weeks the CEL comes on, and I go back.Once thy ha the truck for almost a week as they had to get some parts. I ended up renting a car, and was pissed about that. Still...the CEL periodically comes on. I was going to turn it into a lemon law complaint(I live in PA.) and I had it back there in May..they put on a 2nd. fuel filter. The charge was 1500 clams. I see that the newer models have 2 fuel filters. Any opinions? I feel that I shouln't have had to pay for that. I bought a new truck , and why should I have to pay for a factory upgrade? Help.

Well the filters arrived! Looks just like the pictures earlier in the thread of the one on the truck. Spins on just like an oil filter, and has a giant hole in the bottom where that sensor/valve gets moved from the old filter to the new one. Packaged in with the filter is some sort of o-ring, I assume the one for the bottom fitting. (I'm not going to unwrap the sealed plastic because then the filter is just open on both ends to contamination!)

So I went to the 2013 Diesel Supplement thinking for sure the Fuel Filter Part Numbers would be there. This is all I could find:

"Fuel Filters We recommend you use MOPARŪ Fuel Filter. Must meet 3 micron rating. Using a fuel filter that does not meet the manufacturers filtration and water separating requirements can severely impact fuel system life and reliability."

HA HA HA HA.

-Guzzler
talking to the guys yesterday at Cummins West, where I bought my fuel filter for 41 dollars, they (Cummins) sells the fuel filters to Dodge/Ram who then adds their dealer markup to them.

So does anyone know the part number for the underhood filter? Is it the Fleetguard FS43255?

Already have the frame mounted 68197867AA on order but want to order a couple sets of both.

Thanks.
