I like it. Are you going to be towing competitively or as a toy hauler?

Quick Update, i just got my spartan tuner ordered up should be here by the end of the week, got to get the manual specific tunes for it. Also im in the works of building and making a fully custom 5" exhaust for the truck. upon doing some shopping i was seeing colant filter kits go for $170 and this is just crazy, i can make my own kit for around 70 maybe or less??? i will post the part numbers of the filter and filter block im using.

just ordered my colant filter and filter base, check my post on the performace board for the 6.4l Here it is re-posted.
Dont pay for the overpriced kits for a anodized piece of aluminum and some hose, save your money and spend it on better upgrades. Im here to share the wealth, i did some reasarch and here you go,

Go to your local hardware store and buy all the hose and clamps for this install, roughly
10 ft hose
8 hose clamps
2 tee fittings
2 valves to mount to block ( not nessicary but when you change the filter you can close the valves and not loose much or any colant)

Order these from NAPA

Filter adapter base
part number# FIL 4763
$49.99
NAPA AUTO PARTS

Colant Filter
part number# FIL 4070
$15.49
NAPA AUTO PARTS

Or if you wanted to use it for an aditional fuel filter
Filter part number# FIL 3225

Either way this is way less expensive then the kits and will help save your money for better mods and longevity of your engine.

just picked up my coolant filter and block this weekend, also got my mudflaps installed. I custom cut a set of Big rig international flaps to fit. They were only $10.99 apiece so well worth it.
