It looks worth it if you have a job 1 truck. I have a Job 1, Im going to check it out too? I wonder if its a bypass filter or gets all the fluid every pass?

I have a job 2 truck. It sounds like it filters all the fluid every time its returned to the pan. It sounds like a good set up. If the filter gets plugged it goes to a bypass mode so it doesnt ruin the transmission. I am really considering getting it.

These are the same guys I got a coolant filter from awhile back . Dieselsite is definitely a quality vendor , I think they manufacture these filtration in house?

I have both their trans and coolant filters on my 08 job 2. Both kits are awsome, well engineered, quality parts, good instructions, and well priced. I recommend them and dieselsite as a whole to everyone.

Antonm, are both of those pretty straightforward and easy installs? I always like to consider decently priced insurance.

I thought both are easy to install, although I didn't follow the directions exactly as written. I chose not to drill holes in the frame to mount them so I made some bolt on brackets that used existing holes in the frame. I've been a gear head for several years now, done several major projects and spent WAY to much money on aftermarket automotive stuff. Both the trans and coolant filter kits from dieselsite are top quality , and would've expected them to have cost more than they did.
