I like Wix, my parts store has a display of all the major filters cut in half and the wix has a lot more filter in it. Just one opinion though

I like WIX too because thats the NASCAR filter but Ive never used it because none of these cheap ass stores around here sell them. So I go to the ole fram filter or the expensive mobil 1 filter. I dont think it matters much if you change your oil every 3000 miles.

I was reading on the Turbo Diesel Register that you shouldn't use Fram filters. Nobody seems to like them because they don't do a very good job. I don't know if this just applies to just diesels or gas engines also.

Blackdog, your right Fram is the cheapest made filter on the market from what I hear.

Re: Best oil filter for Dodge 4x4s

i'd stay away from the Fram filters as well. ....i recall something about the carboard inside instead of something durable like aluminum/metal.


oh yeah, Delco makes a good filter too. I'm not sure if there's a dodge application(there wasn't one for the '99 diesel), but if there is, try that one out. for my truck they're $2.80 at walmart.

I like to use P169071 by Donaldson. It is the longer version, but it will fit. It has synthetic media and is a VERY well made unit.

Re: Best oil filter for Dodge 4x4s

I run the HP-2004 K&amp;N Oil Filter I buy them 5 or so at a time from Summit at 9.95 a piece. I have noticed that the engine starts a bit easier (less noise) with this filter compared to the Mopar versions. I assume that the filter is what is helping this because nothing else was changed.
