I can see a market coming for a lower billet cap.

One thing the video forgets to mention is that you need to loosen the fuel filter housing about 3 turns prior to draining it. This will keep additional fuel from entering the housing when draining and will keep fuel waste to a minimum (not to mention keeping down on the mess).

I didn't have to loosen any nuts on the secondary fuel filter because there wasn't any. Do the 2014's not have the clamp to hold it in place or I am missing an important part? I went to loews and bought the tools and when I went to undo it, there was nothing.

That's interesting. Does it still rotate and lock with the pin on the backside of the filter?

Yup. I took off the fuel lines and just twisted it out. Then set the new filter back in and rotated and it clicked right into place. I posted a thread the other day with a picture of my old filter and mentioned i didn't need tools and no one said anything. Thats when I watched your video.

Good video by the way. Thanks for taking the time to do that.

In 2013 they swapped the style on the upper filters.
