I did a DIY exactly like theirs. I wish I woulda just bought there's
I would use it. It never hurts, and they're cheap filters.
Also, in 32k miles, I haven't needed a new filter yet, but I also flushed right before that too.

That one looks good.
The issue with a DIY using the out line from the trans to cooler is you're running right by exhaust. So I had to find/buy some heat wrap for my rubber lines. The DS braided SS lines are wonderful.

Personally, I think it needs it. Allisons have them.
The normal filter is a joke; the magnet does most of the work.
If you tow a decent amount or have a heavy body on the truck, definitely. City driving, yes.

I have a Fram HP1 and mount and Derail t-stat I am planning on adding as soon as I can save up for the JW Valvebody. I would like to do it all at the same time.
