Oil filter part numbers
 
I went through the posts of everyone's oil/filter types, but have something to add after a trip to the dealer...I had it in to replace the trans cooler line and the the tech said to stick to mopar filters only and avoid aftermarket filters, which is a way of saying, spend your money here.

Can everyone post what oil filter they're running, and the part number? I have a 2005 3.7 WK but why is it that when searching for filters, some are short and wider and others are taller and skinnier?

Fram tough guard. I have to ask for one for a 2009 4.7. Most catalogs show the 2008 4.7 as using the old style for the previous gen 4.7

Oil filter is pretty cut and dried. I'd stick with the mopar parts anywhere else on the car besides the engine. I just bought a mopar oil filter, to replace my K&N, when I change the motor oil. Got it at Walmart of all places...5 bucks. Bosch, K&N, and can't go wrong with Mopar, right?

Thanks for the heads up on that! I'll return this one and buy a K&N at another, more reputable store. I've liked the K&N and my oil analyses have always come back with no issues. No reason to change things up.
