Now I have a deal for the OP and anyone else with some cash burning a hole in their wallets. You can buy the 14th St Bridge crossing over DC to VA and the Memorial Bridge for a special low price and I throw in the Key Bridge for free.
Tens of thousands of commuters use these three bridges to get into and out DC and back into the Commonwealth of Virginny each day. Best part is the deed of sale allows you to collect tolls and you keep all the money. Yes you can buy 2 bridges and get one free and collect tolls. Call now operators are standing by!!!!
School teachers can't buy bridges and for the magnets I was just looking for ways to extend the life of my engine .

Re: Oil filter magnets

I emailed the company yesterday to ask what option would be compatible with 3.6L plastic filter housing.


i did get a reply:


Thank you so much for your interest in FilterMag! I can certainly advise on using the FilterMag for your plastic housing. We do see some enthusiasts using a standard FilterMag on engines with this arrangement. It is possible in many cases to use a band clamp to hold a FilterMag onto the side of the filter cartridge housing or cap. The effectiveness of the FilterMag will be similar to a standard usage. The main difference is that the FilterMag is left in place during an oil filter change and a clean damp cloth is used to wipe the collected wear-causing particles from the inside wall of the housing.

If you are interested in trying this arrangement on your Jeep I will be happy to provide a stainless steel band clamp at no extra charge. I will require the outside diameter of the plastic housing so I can determine the correct size FilterMag. I'm sorry but we do not have a database for the outside diameters for these types of housings. What I can guarantee is that if you cannot make it fit for any reason, I will gladly refund your purchase price and shipping both ways at no risk to you. We want you to be happy with your purchase!

Once again, thank you for your interest in FilterMag. If we can be of any further assistance please don't hesitate to email or call.

Warm regards,

Lesslie Gunderson

Evolv0 is just really nice
Re: Oil filter magnets

I just picked up one of these, I got the RA365 model. I believe this is the one that fits the 5.7L oil filter. I will take pics when I get it.. shipping said I will get it by Monday, but I wont be home till the 28th.

lol maybe as overkill for people with deep pockets, put one on your catch can too and see if you get anything up there

Re: Oil filter magnets

Okay, I got it and Yes the RA365 model is the one that fits our filter, there is enough room to fit 2, but after I put it on the car, the filter housing/drain slide is in the way I think to put another.

The filter mad I have to say is STRONG, I was surprised. once I got it like an inch away from the filter, it flew out of my hand and SNAPPED onto the filter. and getting it off, you had to slide off, no way your pulling that thing off.

I also put in a magnetic drain plug.
