6.0 coolant filter

I am considering getting a coolant filter kit for my truck. Which ones do you guys recommend? I have seen ones from dieselsite and dfuser. The one from dfuser says it uses plastic t fittings now and that kinda scares me on that one. Is there anyone else who has a good kit?

I got the kit from dieselsite. It was a good kit and it came with everything you need. Probably could have saved a few dollars by piecing everything together locally but it was easier ordering the one from dieselsite. After all it is just a filter head, some fittings, and hose.

I got dfuser's kit and I like it alot. It was alittle more $$ than dieselsites but I was told he uses better valves and also gives you 3 filters. The T's are plastic but I wouldnt worry about them they arent chintzy by any means.

I wonder why they went to plastic t's? Just because of cost i would imagine.

I have just seen some plastic parts fail that resulted in fluids leaking, so thats why i was a little leary. But if you guys are running them and they are holding up, then i guess they are ok.

Where did you find your filter housing? Do you have a parts list?
