Actually, if you look at the table, the dims are wrong. It says it is 46" tall by 20" wide x 24" deep. They copied the 800D-5REC by accident.
If you look at the fact they both use the same filter, you can estimate the height at 3' instead of 4' and the width at around 3' 6" with the depth will still be around a foot. Where you going to mount it?

STEVE, You know, for the right amount of money, you could have a full time Tech in your garage



I think alot of your problems would go away then. GM seems to be getting alittle excited about all that....As far as playing games like that, I suppose if they had a bug up there butt, they could do anything. I cant imagine that they would want to piss off somebody that will potentially buy a huge quanity of trucks though....


Is it Hot in Florida year round?

I don't think they can void your warranty for this unless they can prove that the extra filtration caused a problem per the Magnuson-Moss Act. I think you should call this act to their attention and take a picture of their faces when you do.
I went through this with Harley on using synthetic oil in one of my bikes. They just wanted to sell me the oil instead of me buying it somewhere else. Now that they sell synthetic oil, it is okay to use it.

Amazing, but I think Mag - Moss will prevent such nonsense at the end of the day. Only problem is that GM has more money to fight about such things than most of us do
