I got mine a few days ago and will probably install it next weekend. I
did look under the truck and the inside of the left frame rail looks
too crowded. So maybe the outside of it will be OK. Before I got the
Oilguard I was thinking of mounting it in the pocket behind the left
wheel below the door hinges. I put the tranny filter in that spot on the
right side and it worked out well. But the Oilguard filter assembly is
heavy and has a bigger mounting bracket. They did provide about 10-ft of
Push-Loc hose to reach a suitable mounting spot. They say NOT to use
hose clamps on the hose. Is this stuff really reliable -- i.e., won't
leak and won't blow off? Seems like hose clamps should really be used.
Or at least some tie-wraps. I've never used this stuff before. A bit
nervous about it.
And how often should the Oilguard filter be changed? The instructions and
their website don't say anything about the filter change interval.
