I would make sure you have the socket to change the filter on the frame rail. It is a pita without one.

BE CAREFUL!!!!!! Don't strip the plastic cap. And I use an oil filter wrench to get them off. Hope that helps

No priming necessary. IIRC its 36mm socket for the one on the frame. And a 24 for the one up top.

Just remove the covers replace the O rings and filters. Hop in the truck cycle the key on and off a couple times. Then fire it up

Yep its 36mm. It isn't to bad of a job. I would wear a shirt you don't mind ruining though. You probably will get diesel on it.

Edit: Dave beat me to it

i agree with dave when i use to stock fuel system i would do it that way, and i also replaced the water drain with the upgraded one, it was like 20 bucks, i think i use to drain that so that i didnt get a fuel bath before pulling the filters out
