Dude I probably run alot like you do and use the same types of fuel as well. Since my filter setup I made, I have changed mine quite often with the amount of miles I drive. I was running like 25K and change the 2 micron out then. But now that I have the guages mounted to watch the fuel pressure, I plan to change the filter when I start to see a change in the fuel pressure of 5-7 psi...

From the filters I have changed, I have cut them open to see just how bad nasty they were, was shocked to see that they are very clean. I doubt the filters would need to be changed even at 50K, unless you really just get a bad tank of fuel all at one time and from one certain place... Thats when the guages will show up the changes and I will just pull over and get a new filter from my tool box and R&R that sucker on the spot.

I think using the guages to change the filter and/or filters out now will save me money in the long run. Might be something to think about dude... Damn sure thing, a 40K $$$ pick-up should come with this sort of filter setup though. Screw that plastic thing on the motor. JIMO

Well maybe you should list the one's that are applicable for the 6.7 that you bought since they dont list it specifically on the site.:thumbsup

2 Filter Heads, Filters, couple barb connectors, oh and a piece of angle iron. Assemble as needed. Its no different than the one sold above, its universal. Just you build it.
