Get a Mopar one off eBay for around $40 shipped.

Yes, it's insanely priced even at $40, but it's also approximately 0.1% of the purchase price of the vehicle. I'll wait until there are 3rd party filters from reputable, mainstream aftermarket manufacturers before considering that route. It seems crazy to me to buy some random knockoff filter for a vehicle this expensive that is still under warranty.

3.0 engine oil filter

The least expensive OEM Mopar filter can usually be found @ Quirk Parts on eBay for $37+ shipping.

There are less costly options from an aftermarket supplier manufactured in South Korea, but the quality of said filter has yet to be verified independently. The only caveat is that aFe is also selling those same South Korean filters under they're own brand name for $29+ shipping, but for only $8 more you can get a genuine Mopar filter.

Re: 3.0 engine oil filter

Well just what independent 3rd is going to do this? On the Ram forum there is already a member that did that. I also have about 3
varieties of Mann and Mahle cartridge filters for my BMWs. They were all purchased for around 6 bucks. Comparing these filters from Mann and Mahle (biggest manufacturers of filters I know of in Europe) i can tell no difference. I suspect Korea or
China is where they are getting their filters from. China is where the MOPAR filters I bought came from and Korea for the eBay version. I am on my last MOPAR filter next filter will be the Korea version and I will do Blackstone oil analysis again. I can see staying with factory filters but after examining these Korean filters I am satisfied that there is no significant difference. Will report the results of my change over once I get the oil analysis done.

Re: 3.0 engine oil filter

I am all for using a Mann filter if we could. When I had my Mercedes powered Grand Cherokee I was able to procure a case of said filters from Europe for about $37 shipping included.

Your statement is mostly correct-the Mopar filters were being manufactured in China. FIAT just change the vendor, and they are now being manufactured in Mexico. As for the South Korean filters, if you want to be the guinea pig-by all means go ahead. I too have looked at the ram forums, and have read what was posted. That being said however, I'm still inclined to use a Mopar filter for what is remaining of my powertrain warranty.

I am open to the possibility of equivalent or superior performance from aftermarket parts. Personally, though, I want the level of assurance I'd get from a manufacturer with a reputation to uphold rather than what I would get from eBay seller aq68386bzwq who is pushing random filters and swears these filters are just as good and meet spec. "Heretofore unknown Asian companies exaggerating product specs? Whoever heard of such a thing?!" (*cough*)

Furthermore, there's no guarantee that the random batch of knockoffs you got from aq68386bzwq will be from the same knockoff factory or company if you bought the "same product" from aq68386bzwq tomorrow. I've had this same discussion regarding cheap "just as good" body armor from Asia.

The reward of saving maybe $30 per year on oil filters isn't sufficient for me to take the risk. Maybe if I were changing the oil every 3 months rather than every 10k miles/12 months. Wait, no, not even then (haha).

Re: 3.0 engine oil filter

Use what you want. I have these filters in my position and have compared them to both Mann and Mahle.
I have no issues using them and will use the first on the next oil change which should give sufficient opportunity to see how the Ram 1500 Diesel sites oil change goes. I believe the person using them stated that he would be posting soon the results of the filter and hopefully pictures.
Good luck to us all...
