Any Need for a trans filter?!

So im about to order up some filters, and was seeing that diesel site has a tranny filter kit and was thinking of getting it, does anyone think this is a good idea or unnecessary, good kit bad kit?! thanks!

theyre spin on filter kit is nice i run it on mine the purpose is to stop tc fragments from destroying your tranny these trannys are good theyre weal link is the tc when it starts coming apart the pieces destroy the tranny with the kit it traps them before they get to the pan so you only need a tc instead of a tranny rebuild

traded it for an 06 dodge sorry

The 5R110 (bolted up to every 6.0L) has an external transmission filter, so nothing additional is necessary.

I'm pretty sure that the external tranny filter on our truck only filters a portion of the oil and in the case of a TC problem, it wouldn't catch the fragments prior to them getting back to the tranny. I also like the dieselsite kit and plan on getting it eventually. Just got their coolant kit. Now I need the time to put it in. I've heard nothing but the best about any of their stuff.

yep the ds kit goes on the return line to the pan from the cooler so it filters everything that came from the tc

traded it for an 06 dodge sorry

No, it's not a bypass filter at all; it filters everything that goes through the tranny cooler and is inline, so would trap any debris before causing any further damage.
