    Thinking of upgrading the current filter housing on my '17. As I looked around I got to thinking that the older I get, the more I don't really want to crawl around under my truck and fight with skid plates, etc. Has anyone done the adapter/remote mount?

    Also, for those that swapped the plastic housing for the aluminum, I think I saw that theres stuff you need to know to do it properly. Wheres the info on that?

    Thanks all...stuff to think about when it's too cold to do anything to the truck....

    I just got the aluminum replacement. Still need O rings and I'll need the pipe that sits inside the filter inside the housing. It appears that I can swap the center pipe out of the plastic housing and install it in the new aluminum piece but I'd like to get a replacement just in case I damage the piece. Don't know the correct nomenclature for the part.

    I'm also interested in replacing the oil drain plug. I've read about the Fumoto plug on this site but I'm also interested in the Femco oil drain plug as it seems like it may be less likely to be damaged or open inadvertently. I haven't seen anything on this site about the Fumoto but this is the link to it on Amazon. In for more answers.

    Edited to add that I also need the replacement filter element.

    Yes, the center pipe from the plastic cap needs to be transferred to the aluminum cap.

    For removal, you will need to use small needle-nose pliers or a screwdriver to bend or pry the sheet metal retaining tabs that prevent the tube assembly from rotating in the cap. After bending the tabs, tilting as needed while you rotate the tabs past the stops, will free the center tube from the cap.

    Note the order of assembly for the valve plate and spring under the tube assembly, and assemble them back the same way in the aluminum cap. Re-bend the tabs back to their original shape once they are centered between the retention tabs in the cap.

    I am not sure, but I don't think the center tube is available as a separate part. A center pipe of the proper length is provided with the filter housings; I believe the only way to get a correct spare will be to buy the plastic filter housing. The center pipe is made of thin sheet steel. You aren't going to hurt it by bending those locking tabs.

    I've had the Stahlbus plug on mine for a while now. Never spilled a drop.
