its not not at all if i remember right its right by the transfer case on the keelson side of the frame rails. you need to pull the fuel pump fuse or relay. when i did it i could find them. if you find it let me know!

anyways after you pull the fuse/relay run your eng until it dies and then try it a few more times so you know all of the fuel is out of the lines.. then you just unblot the filter and bolt it back on..reinstall the fuse/relay and your done. should take less then 30mins.

Piece of cake.

Grab a bucket, and a fire extinquisher (just in case). Disconnect the battery.

Spray the fittings with PB blaster (or other penetrant) and let it soak for a good 15 minutes. Spray a day ahead of time if you can.

Get the proper tools and preferably a flare wrench of the proper size. The flare wrench will help prevent 'rounding' of the fittings.

After you break loose the fittings - stop there temporarily. Follow the hard lines from the filter to the connection points on the body. Disconnect these on both ends. This will give you the flexibility to get the filter out easily once you disconnect the fittings.

Go back to your filter, disconnect the fittings (capture the fuel in bucket), replace filter, clean the ends of the fittings before re-attaching, and don't forget to re-attach the lines to the body. Re-connect battery, start the truck up, check for leaks. Continue to check for leaks in a few days or so.

Your biggest concern in the whole process, is NOT TWISTING OR KINKING the fuel line.
