it is about $10 cheaper than the stock one at my dealership but i don't care about the price.

i just want the best for my truck. it helps me make my money so i want to keep it that way. my old 94 gm has 330k miles on it and i haven't had to do much more than reg maintenance on it. because of how i maintain my truck. and i want this on to be just like it.

Does anyone fill the filter up with fuel before screwing it back on? Wondering if this would save time and pumping??

dont forget....if you are planning on putting a pyro in...a good time to do it is when you change the filter, that is if you remove the liner.

Yeah, Danny is the man!
I do it from the top without removing the liner. Can change it in about 20-30 minutes now, it's super easy. I use a filter wrench to turn the last 1/2 turn on the filter to make it's tight.

in the 2008 series, it is best done using the methods described, and removing the inner fender well liner, otherwise, you can remove it from the top under the hood, but, you will need to dismount the primer pump from the engine block to give enough space to remove the filter and leave it dismounted until you've installed the replacement filter. Some engineer decided it would be a good idea to make it impossible to get the filter out once it's been unscrewed, and in the owners manual it says to remove the inner fender well liner clips, but only the ones on the rear of the fender.
