    With an auxiliary filter setup like this, is there any additional concern to fuel gelling in the winter? Do they make one with a heating element for colder environments or is it not something to worry about?

    Fuel gels at 17.5 f .maybe think about a blanket that they use on backflow devices .

    If the fuel is not properly treated the first exposed filter inline is generally where gelling occurs. Fleetguard does sell filter heads with heaters, and you can tap into the OEM heater to trip a relay (this is how mine is wired).

    I also have insulation on my exposed filter to help keep the fuel in the filter warm.

    Not much to worry about here in Texas with fuel gelling. FWIW, Cat sells a F/W seperator filter with optional fuel heater built into the polycarbonate bowl.

    Just installed the dual filter kit on my '04. Pretty straight forward install. There is tight clearance between the "J" pipe and the filter base when trying to tighten one of the mounting nuts. You will need to use a standard 12 point socket (thin wall). Took me 2.5 hours on my back in the driveway. I took my time and reread the directions a couple times. I was kinda surprised about how much fuel line I had to cut out (17"). I also made sure that I stayed away from bends so I would have straight pipe to seal to with the compression fittings. The truck was parked nose up in the driveway and there was very little fuel in the line. I filled the filters with fuel, bumped the starter, waited for the fuel pump to stop and fired it up. There was no hesitation or sputter. I let it idle for a few minutes while I checked for leaks. No leaks and the truck runs fine. I will take it out on the freeway this afternoon and see if the fuel pump still keeps up.

    sweet... due to prior obligations, I didnt get to install mine this weekend. Really wanted to since I traveled across the state of Texas pulling my camper and just cringed every time I stopped to buy fuel in the middle of nowhere.
    It will go on this coming week though!.

    There are no noticeable performance issues with my "weak" lift pump. I figure if the lift pump overcomes atmospheric pressure and the filter set up can flow more than what a stock truck requires, I will not see any difference, until the filters plug up.

    I'm considering adding the single filter unit to my short bed. Has anyone installed the single filter on a short bed able to comment on the space available? The single filter kit says it was designed for the long bed truck, see below:

    * PLEASE NOTE: This Single Filter Kit was designed and produced for a long-bed 2003-2007 5.9 Cummins diesel, but may work on other applications with minor modifications. Use your own discretion when ordering this kit as refunds will not be given. Also, please make sure you have enough room under your truck on the frame rail to mount it. You will need approximately 20" of free space in front of the fuel tank to install it properly. The Dual Filter Kit below is a much better option for short-bed trucks as it takes far less room to install it. Typically mounts at rear of drivers door underneath.

    If you look at the pictures on their web site you can see that the single mounts in a different spot farther back on the frame than the double filter setup. The double filter bracket attaches to the two rear driver side seat bolts. There may be some other considerations such as where the bends are in the fuel lines on a short vs long box.

    I see this is on the 3rd gen forum. Would it work with my 2011 4th gen? Been looking for awhile for better filtration, not found much other than the Mopar heavy duty filter.

    This should work if you are just looking for additional filtration. Glacier Diesel‘s MK-2 Big Line Kit for the Ram Cummins 6.7L engine. They offer two different version one for the 07.5-09 and the other for 10-12 MY; both sell for $219. They use a Fleetgaurd filter part number FF5320 and will flow at 100GPH with a delta T (pressure drop) of less than 1PSI. This is per the Glacier Diesel Specs on the filter and kit.

    I am using one on my truck after the stock filter and before the CP3 pump, see pictures attached.

    Here is the link if you are interested. http://www.glacierdieselpower.com/de...dept_id=08-003
