The dimensions are 8" X 5" but if you look close at the picture you'll see that the left side is curved to the contours of the 2011 - 2014 chevy fender well. The same year GMC's have a different fender well.

I bought the door online at MADJACK so there was no measuring. Just traced and carefully cut the hole about an inch in from the marks.

They have them for every GM truck model year.

Last year on vacation I changed the filter 4 times in 600 miles . Finally got tired of taking the inner fender out and back in , so I threw in the bed of the truck . Needless to say I was getting good @ changing them .

Nice and neat job . They should do this from the factory .

You mentioned trying a different brand, but I used parker racor (delco) on my duramax to 200k miles and not even one hiccup with the fuel system. I highly suggest sticking with parker and saving $10-15 not paying for ac Delco name.
