Changing fuel filters...advice?

I have an 05 6.0...thought I was having injector problems. Called AAA to have it towed and my truck driver showed me the reset switch under the glove box...who'd of thunk! However, he said my filters were probably crap and should get them changed. I used to do my Cummins, but I am unsure how to bleed this truck after filter swap. I havent taken anything apart yet...hoped to get some sound advice from the group first.

You don't need to bleed anything. There's two filters, one on the engine and one on the frame rail. You can use a 36mm socket, which is what I use. Be careful of the frame rail filter or you will get a diesel bath!!! Good luck!

You just have to cycle your ignition a few times and it will work the air out. This should help you out...Changing 6.0 fuel filters

Theres an allen or hex screw on the side of the filter on the rail get a bucket under it and take it out drains the fuel shouldn't get any on ya.
As far as air after a couple cycles if it doesn't wanna run, I'll usally just pop the hood and crack the small fuel filter just a little you can't miss the air excaping tighten it back up ,starts up runs fine the 6.0 will get rid of the rest of the air it's own.
