DIY filter replacement

What's the recommended interval to replace the DIY filter? I installed mine in June. The filter looks a little dirty but it's still kind of white. Is it a yearly thing or bi-yearly?

I think mine was on 2 years.... a little diry is good. They filter better with a little dirt trapped in them....

Id say when its an eye sore under the hood change it out. I doubt mine "needed" to be changed but it was looking ugly so i freshened it up!

average life is at 15k miles it is still flowing the same as or more than stock. now if your in very dusty conditions you might need to change it sooner.

I live on a 1/3 mile gravel rd and see LOTS of dusty roads..no problem runing 30-50k miles on a Donaldson..
Never blow out a filter..can drive a hole into it. These filters will hold over a 1lb of dirt..
