Lightbulb Efuel questions

So i have been looking at doing the efuel for a while now and read alot of posts on here about it. I may be wrong but i think i saw a write up on it a while back when someone used a SD fuel bowl for the filter and was wondering if any of you know anthing or have ever seen it. The reason i ask is that i dont really want the filters down under the truck even if a cover was made for it. Any leads to finding it or help with it would be great.

Most people choose to get rid of the fuel bowl when going to efuel to avoid future leaks and have a cleaner valley. Even SD guys do it. But if you wanted, yes am I sure you could use that setup. My filters don't hang that low, a few inches higher than the transfer case skid plate.

Efuel questions

No I haven't had any problems but I haven't driven my truck much this winter. What you could do is swap out the fine filter with one a little coarser to help prevent freezing. My filters just hang there, no covers

Ok i just didnt know how well it took to the cold weather. Did you do your own setup or was there a write up that you fallowed. I would like to find a pretty detailed one to fallow with pictures and parts list that isnt real high priced as a cost efficent and cleanly done is what iam shooting for.

Mine is DIY. If you want pictures I could post some. There are lots of good kits out there, but you will pay for them. Mine ~650
