Did a quick search, and didn't come up with anything.

Bought my truck in November 2010. My mechanic said that the hard lines coming off the front of the fuel filter to the engine block looked a little wet for his liking, meaning that they would need to be replaced.

The last few days, I've noticed a strong smell of diesel, and low and behold, it looks like I've got a leak from around the area of the fuel filter, because everything looks like it's been sprayed with diesel. How big of a deal is it to change the hard lines coming off the filter? I know that being clean is the main issue, but is it a job best tackled by a mechanic or the *GASP* dealership?

Any help is appreciated, I'd like to get this fixed asap since this is my work truck, and I'm going to get a few quotes today.

I would think it shouldn't be too hard. I am sure you will have to take your line off and get one made if the dealership/parts store doesn't have one in stock.
