That's scare mongering if ever there was. And yes, factory prices (like much of the servicing costs) are extortion. I've used Wesfill filters on previous cars and my wife's car, great quality, can't fault them, no more chance of failure than any others out there, incl Chrysler branded. I bet they get theirs made for about $5 - or less.
Re the WCO163 and the WA5135
Those part numbers DO fit the 2014. The only difference with the later genuine oil filter part number is that they've moved the position of the O ring slightly for commonality with some of the Dodge Rams.
In any event Ryco are doing filters for Jeeps now too.
Are you suggesting they're rubbish too? Jeep must absolutely love people like you! (Or do you work for them?)
I've used Ryco on all my cars since the early 1970's with absolutely ZERO issues, ever.
