Coolant Filter System for 6.0

I was going to order a BD coolant system but before I do just wanted to get some opinions and recommendation. I am looking for a quality system that is easy to install myself and easy to change the filters on.
I don't want to build one from parts.
Thanks for everyones input,

Dieselsite and First coast diesel performance have similar ones. I have the one from Dieselsite, easy to install, have not changed the filter yet. The Dieselsite one has a polished housing, no difference in performance, but looks good!

Yeah, I'd go with one of those. I too have the dieselsite one. Filter changes are nice and easy.

Get valves to isolate the filter for changes

I can vouch for diesel site, I have one and love it. Ball valves make it clean and easy to change out the filter.

I have the dieselsite one. Good kit and has everything needed to install. Which I really liked.

The only problem is mine is sitting in my tool box waiting to be installed.

I dont think you can get any better quality when your dealing with just a filter base and some hose......I have the FCDP kit and like it alot, they are all pretty much the same.
Adam is on this forum quite a bit and thats why I bought from him.

I'm think about the coolant filter as well, I just bought a bone stock 05 so I have lots that needs to be done. I hear that the original coolant has some type of silcant that clogs the oil cooler? If I tear mine down and replace the oil cooler and put a coolant filter kit on then refill with a different type coolant will the filter catch any remaining silicant before the oil cooler screen does?

Also whats the prefered coolant to go back with in the 6.0L?

Ordered the Dieselsite kit last week. I bought my truck used with 30,000 miles. Now have 42,000. Wish I knew about this then. The sooner the better.

Another question. Is it worth changing all the coolant or flushing the system along with the install?
