transmission filter kit

Which transmission filter kit do you guys recommend? I have found 2:
External Remote Transmission Filter Kit
http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=761

I know dieselsite have very good products but is it worth the extra 70 bucks? Any suggestions will help.

looks like the 70 part is the braided hoses and pressed fittings over hose clamps and rubber hoses.

ahh sir you are correct. Which one would you buy? just seems if the braided hoses ever ended up leaking or even rusting depending if they are s.s it would be more expesive for new ones than just the rubber hoses. + rubber wont rust.

well theres still rubber in those braided hoses. the braids help with swellin under pressure.

i like the diesel site one with the bypass in it but 70 extra is a lot. i already run rubber hose to my 6oh cooler so im not worried about the hose. the other one just looks the same .

Wont the braided lines be more puncture resistant. LIke if you were driving through a field and had a big stick go into the rubber line and rupture it.

i think the likely hood of that happening is like rare.

i would be more worried about the sticks just ripping the lines off after grabbing them

had that happen to us but with wiring. resulted a no start truck
