Very nice . I'm seeing quite a few posts on different forums and groups about people getting rid of their LBZ for an LML and regretting it... pretty sure that's not the case with you at least so far. I do love the interior of a loaded LBZ more than any other year truck I think, which is why I'll probably never get rid of mine.

Okay, you can come out of your room now if you promise to be good.

Merry Christmas eve Duramaxers. I spent the day having lunch with pops while the wife worked (last day of the week for her) and also decided to swap out my FASS filters since I didn't have much else going on. Went smooth but I've gotta get better at my method, I must've spilled about a gallon or more of fuel . Luckily smart enough to use the catch pan. Went with Fleetguard this time instead of Baldwin. Not really sure why just wanted to try something new. Anyone ever run Fleetguard on their lift pumps? I was surprised that when I received them, right there in bold print says "made in Mexico". Guess I should of done some more research before buying.

I’ve used FleetGuard for several years, decided to try Baldwin this last time.
For the AirDog the fuel filter is a true 5 micron, the Baldwin is a 10 micron.
The Fleet Guard WS is a screen only rated something like 45 micron where the Baldwin WS is part filter part screen rated 20 micron.
Specs are from FleetGuard and Baldwin.
Pretty much 6 of 1 half dozen of others on choices.

Click on Link below Read #28 & #31 for a much better way and less loss of fuel changing LP filters.

IMO in some cases “Made in Mexico” is better than “Made in China”.

“Merry Xmas”🎄

I use a set of these, just pinch the feed line off and change the filter. Priming can sometimes make a mess though. Generally now though I thread the WS on and take the pliers off the feed, usually by the time I have the FF ready and threaded on the WS is full, so just leave the FF loose until it starts to run out of the top of it, then tighten it up. I have a sump, so it has a tendency to siphon the tank when you remove a filter.

Meh...IDK.
Two $9 ball valves on each side.
Close 'em, remove filter, pour it's contents into the new filter, install, then repeat on the other filter.

Both new filters full of fuel, open ball valves, start truck.

No (hardly any) fuel split, no need to prime, no mess,
boogie on.

$18 saved, same outcome.
Pinching off the ⛽️ fuel lines eventually overtime that could damage the fuel line.
I did this one ☝️ time, I don’t care for the permanent crush/kink in my AD fuel line.
