Coolant filter recommendation

What are the top 3 coolant filters and where can you get them? I've seen lots of people talking about them and there seem to be a bunch. Which are the best, easiest to install, cleanest looking, etc.?

I like mine from dieselsite.com. Get the valves from them, it's easier than finding them after the fact at grainger. No leaks, easy install, looks good. Can't think of anything else you'd want. I know someone will chime in with the new ones that have no hose splices and they seem cool, they just came out too late for me.

I have the Sinister one. Clean and easy install. Some have said that theirs leaks from the factory but they just put thread tape on the threads and it's good to go.

Here it is installed on my truck:

Mine is identical to the one above from Sinister. I mus be one of the lucky ones as mine did not leak right out of the box. Pay attention to where you route your feed line so it does not rub on the CAC tube.

I too have sinister...not a fan of the blue hoses, is prefer a more factory look, but a quality product. I think the leaks were in some of the early models, and those problems have since been rectified...great customer service. Came with a filter and ball valves, got mine for thanksgiving 10% off sale they had, plus free shipping. Perhaps they'll have a Xmas sale... Mine was 108 to the door I think. I'd say the big three so to speak would be diesel site, dfuser and sinister, although not necessarily in that order. From what I've read diesel site may seem to be the most popular.

Forgot to add that my Sinister kit did not leak. It appears to have tape on the threads from the factory. This was a couple months ago.
