I think everyone can't wait to see what they got, I waited till 1k miles because the outlet hose was still hot, this is what I got, best case scenario really........Coolant filter change after 1000 mi, with pics.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

No, merc, mine wasn't bad at all. I flushed the filter and caught it all in a coffee filter, that little bit of debris was less than a teaspoon, none of it really even looked like sand. Less than a tsp of debris.

I was planning on doing the exact same thing, just before tearing it apart for studs. I'm going to replace the oil cooler although it doesn't need it (I don't think it does yet). When I talked to Vince about this since I'm running his sleek awesome filter, he suggested putting it on and letting it filter the nonsense right away. Essentially what could happen is when you perform the flush, you'll break up the gummed up silicates in the oil cooler and as soon as you shut the truck off to drain it, those freed up particles will settle before then can get drained out completely. Basically my suggestion (which is what Vince suggested to me) is install the filter, let it filter the entire system now, and leave it on for the flush as well so that it picks up the particles in the system that are broken free from the restore plus (if that's what you use). You have a better chance of capturing those particles with the filter.

Sorry man, didn't take time to actually read the post the first time around. Just got caught up in the pictures! Lol. I'm probably gonna do the same thing you did on your flush and skip the chemicals. I'm concerned about the rust in my system and have two quarts of vc-9 on the shelf. But with good deltas, I don't think I am ready to go that route yet.

Yea, fortunately I haven't seen the first sign of rust in my system.
