There are two FUEL FILTERS, You first change the one that right under the drivers side frame,{THAT ONE IS THE SMALLER FILTER} Then on top of your engine you have the oil filter & the second fuel filter{THE BIGGER FILTER} I mail-order the two filters for $67.88 shipped to my house. I bought it from THE DIESEL STORE

If you are getting an 08 try to find a job 2 truck or higher. They seem to have less problems and have a better torque converter.
