So what does it look like? It's common for diesel FF's to turn black from the asphaltane (sp?) in the fuel and causes no issues at all but it does make the filter look terrible.

Don't know if it's needed or not, but I change fuel filters and oil filters every oil change (about every 5000 plus miles). Might cost a little more, but it only takes once to regret being cheap. I spent a lot (did I say a "lot ... I mean "I spent a LOT of money) when purchasing that truck. I'm not going to take the cheap route now with on-going maintenance!

I was told to change mine every 15,000 miles. Is that a good idea?
Every 15K is recommended and works fine unless you happen to buy fuel heavily contaminated with water. It is recommended to drain a little fuel from the bottom of your fuel filter once a month. I drain into a clear container so I can see the water, if any is present.
Well with an 03 Dmax and the known injector problems with the LB7 engine I would rather change the filter every 5000 miles than replace the injectors. Not saying that I won't ever have to, but just want to get as much life out of them as I can.
