I gathered enough info from here to put together my filter setup. I used old filter base from my previous truck, the only issue was that it is a fuel filter base, but I found a wix filter without water separation and is good to 10 microns. I had everything for the install but the pex T's and filter so I am into it about 20 dollars. The bracket I made from some metal I had laying around, im not a welder so it was a hammer it in the vice and cutoff wheel kind of deal.
I can snap some pics with a tape as reference tomorrow when its light. The only thing I can remember was the part where it bolts to the alternator is 1" x 4" There is plenty of room where its mounted that I wasnt real technical about it. IF I remember right it was approx 12" from the back bolt to the filtert base
I don't know about fuel filters, but it's common knowledge that oil filters put a goo into the cooling system. I think it would behoove you to make sure a fuel filter won't similarly break down when used as a coolant filter.
I started to do a DIY filter, but oil filters have different threads than coolant filters.

WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!
I went ahead with the fuel filter since I have seen a quite a few diy setups with small fuel filters. I am not 100% that it leaves no trace, but I assumed with the touchy nature of diesel injection systems that it would not. I will be checking it out though
