coolant filter kit

i am debating buying the kit from dieselsite or making my own i plan on flushing and changing my coolant and want to put it on when i do this so i wanna do it soon (before winter) if i were to make it how would i go about doing this i have heard that you can get the stuff from napa

if i were to get the stuff and make my own kit
how much would it cost vs buying the kit

if i make my own where should i mount it on the frame rail or engine compartment or where i do work on a farm and drive off road so it does need some sort of protection i dont want it to get ripped off or poked

any advice would be great thanks brett

I bought the kit from Dieselsite when it was $60, for that I couldn't make it myself. Only you can say if it is worth it to you, I won't give the parts list or the how to plumb it because I wouldn't want someone doing that for my CCV Mod kit, sold through Stealth. But I will say that every PSD should run a coolant filter kit!! Changing it one time and cutting open the old filter will make you swear by them!!

its just easier to order the kit. i priced all the stuff on how to do it and it would have been cheaper and quicker to just order the kit.

I am going to order the kit sooner or later, I noticed in their ad on dieselsite the said the mount bracket isn't aluminum more, now all it says is "black powder coat". So is it powder coated alum or steel?

take a look at mine
DIY Coolant Filter – Here is how I did mine

I like to DIY everything I can not only to save a little money, but for the fun of building something and learning more about the truck

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

thanks guys i check today i can get a filter base and a couple of the fittings from carquest for like $45 and a filter with sca for $10 if i run regular heater hose i should be able to get that for about $10 so i will have maybe $60 into it the only thing im trying to decide is where i want to mount it do i wanna put it on the frame rail or in the engine bay im thinking engine bay would be better seeing that i do drive off road and dont want it to get damaged but also seems it would be alot easier to mount off the frame rail the other question i have is i know the inlet would come out of the tstat housing but where do i want to route the retun to the overflow bottle? thanks for all the help guys as tubular stated i would like to do it myself to save some cash (im in college) and i like the expirence of building things myself
