how often do you change?

I change oil and filter every 5k
I change air filter every 10k
I have been changing fuel filter every 5k but I just did the hutch mod. How often does everybody go on both fuel filters?

Are you running a 6637 and changing it every 10k? And a fuel filter every 5k? That is a bit overkill.

Oil and filter: 5000-7500
Fuel filter: 15,000
ATF: 30,000
Power steering ATF: annually
Brake fluid: every two years
Diffs: front 50k, rear changed 50k miles ago... probably won't touch it for another 50k
Coolant: However many years it says on the bottle or how the test strips are doing.
6637 air filter: 50k

What filter did you end up using on the hutch mod?

Not the exact same but similar. I ran this set up on my old dodge:

Cat fuel filter set up - Dodge Cummins Diesel Forum

Would run 45k intervals and the filters still had life in them, fuel pressure never budged.

If you want to be conservative you should able to run 20k intervals no problem. Do you have a fuel pressure gauge? If not I would get one and use it as a judge when to change the filters.

Oil @ 4,000 miles
Fuel filter @ 10,000 miles
Air filter @ 10,000 miles (cleaning)
Tranny @ flush 16,000 miles
Rear Gear @ 30,000 miles
Coolant @ 60,000 miles + additive @ 15,000 miles

I know these mileages might seem low, but I'm all about taking care of all the fluids

5k oil and filter
7.5k fuel filter
30k trans fluid flush
50k axles
air filter - yearly (10k or so)

I am about to do the hutch mod, and plan to change the factory filter at the same time. I suppose I'll be good for a long time on the factory filter, at least 2x as long as the new baldwin. I love that they are cheap and will be easy to replace.
