I used the Cat setup, it mounts the filter under the truck.

davesupra, I see on the web site that they say mount the Cat before the stock filter. That sounds back wards to me. Is that how yours is mounted? I am going to get one for my 2003, but seems like it should be mounted after the stock. Thank you for any info.

While I personally would chose to have the filter under the hood. Under the truck can be trouble. The cat filter is 4 micron. Fleet gaurd is what u want.

Cat advertises the filter at 2 microns. Are they lying? They may be, that's why I ask. I ordered one and my question is why mount it before the stock filter. thanks, guys.

2 micron fuel filter

I think it's a 5 micron or 4. They changed the rating. Either fleet gaurd or the cat is fine but I chose the fleet gaurd because it came in my gdp kit. I've heard negative about the cat filter

i am going to paste a $75 setup that is the best there is. some of our 06's still have the stock filter that was installed at the factory. we mount the filters just forward of the fuel tank. we run a fleet of dodges and recently installed one on a 06. there is two bolts through the floor board for a rear seat option at this location. some of our trucks use them others do not. get a 2" x 3" piece of angle iron 6" long. make a card board template that the two bolts and keeper nuts will go through hold the template on the inside against the 2" part and drill the two holes they will be about 5/8" i think and about 3 7/8 " between. center the holes on the 2" and near the edge on the 2" hold the angle iron over the bolts with the 3"part the furtherest away from the tank and drill a 1/4" hole between the two holes, keep drilling through the floor board. now after you mount the filters to the angle iron just simply mount it with a 1/4 grade 8 bolt. this is the only hard part the other items is easy. the total time including building the bracket is about 1 1/2 hours. i will give you napa numbers but they can cross reference to wix or car quest. the two bases are 4770 the water separator pre filter is 3406 the 2 micron filter is 3674. use a 3/8" nipple with about 1/2" space in the middle connect the two bases together observing the in and out. because of this the mounting plate on one filter base is about 1" further out than the other. install two 90* 3/8" barbed fittings on the bases and temporary bolt the angle iron up and hold the filters up to it. make sure everything clears and mark the one base that touches the plate to drill the three holes to mount the filters. next cut the feed fuel line at this location and bend the lines out a little and install 3/8 hose over the lines and to the barbed fittings. i put a small amount of flair on the steel lines. but i do not think it is necessary. Bleed the air out through the stock filter before trying to start it. use a gauge and do not change the filters until you see a four pound drop this should be about every 150,000 miles and the stock filter will never need to be changed. Cheapest place is Wix Filters - Bases: FleetFilter Secure Online Store

your filter base has two inlets and two outlets on each base be careful to connect the nipple between the outlet of the first filter to the inlet of the second. only one of the bases get's the bolts as the offset places the second base about a inch away from the plate. we use to make spacers on the first ones and then decided they were not needed

Thanks, guys. I've purchased a Cat kit. Being a noob, I probably shouldn't have. Now, if I want to have the secondary filter mounted after the oem, do I need to purchase a different kit? A straight to the point answer would be greatly appreciated. I can't see the wisdom of mounting a 4 micron filter before a 5 or 7 micron filter. Some one please set me straight. thank you all.
