You'd pretty much have to compare the oil filter housings between the 2015 and later Jeeps and the RAM 1500 to see if it matters where the o-ring is for the Jeep.

I was willing to spend $35 on the aFe filter that matched my OEM filter exactly just to be certain. As a once a year thing for me, it's not a big deal.
Just got this reply back from MAHLE:
"Hello David,
Thank you for your email.

A previous investigation had been performed with our colleagues from Germany as the question regarding OX 1034D ECO has arose before. An installation check was completed for both OE Filters 681 098 34AA, as well as 682 294 02AA.

Both filters will fit and there should be no issue with OX 1034D ECO.

If there are any other questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Philip Schiller
MAHLE Aftermarket Inc."

Re: Mahle Oil Filter

Sweet, I ran Mahle in my VW TDI's for years. They, along with Mann are OE suppliers and make top notch stuff.

I just hope they make fuel filters soon as well.

Its just so much cheaper too. I spoke with the German testers yesterday and they ran tests on it for fitment and seal. They said it fit both part numbers

Yupppp. I just put it in at my last oil change. 2500 so far and no issues. I'm going to do a black stone analysis at the end of this oil change. RAM guys can't use it because of the smaller o ring on the neck. There way their oil filter housing is it didn't fully seat. From what I understand, the 2014 WK2 Eco left the factory with the exact same style of filter from MAHLE.

Re: Mahle Oil Filter

The o-ring discrepancies are specific to the Ram.

This is the explanation given from GDE on another forum:

The WK (Grand Cherokee) engines are now using the same oil filter as the Ram as a service part, in that direction they are compatible but using a WK filter in a Ram is not compatible.

The O-ring placement is important due to the housing drain-back feature on the Ram that is not present on the WK engine. This is in place on the Ram due to the angle the filter is canted at, and allows oil to drain out of the housing when loosening the cap so that it doesn't spill out and make a huge mess.

If you use the WK filter in a DS engine, then you'll always be allowing some un-filtered oil to pass thru the drain-back circuit and back into the pan.
