Mopar Oil Filter
 
Who makes them? Are they a good choice for my GC? If not what would you guys recommend?

I dont know about that but I do know -- dont use a MOBIL 1 filter! The last one I pulled off my Cobra the oil was not circulating through it. I had one about two years ago do the same on my wifes '01 Cherokee, back then I thought "ahh it's a fluke". I threw that one away. I still have the one off my COBRA- The thing is, now, my oil pressure kinda flucuates. It's a shame too.

Mobil 1 filters are the same as the K&N Filters. A lot of people seem to like them though.

Mopar only, if anything goes wrong and you are under warranty, I would want to have the Mopar oil filter on.. I trust the Mopar. although I use to use the Fram TG TOUGH GUARD filters and they seemed to work well. Again Mopar for me.

Mopar filters are good. I'm lazy and the motorcraft filter for my mustang is the same as my jeep so I just use that cause they sell em at walmart pretty cheap

I use the Bosch Distance Plus filter. It's pricey, but the build quality and filtering is top notch.

I did a lot of research and I have found amsoil synthetic and their EA oil filters to be superior to anything else I have found, read about, or experienced. I am NOT a dealer! I just like the over engineered menatlity of the people at amsoil. I have my oil tested and using that combination at the required limits my oil is still fully capable of running longer. I tried the same with Fram and Castrol, which I LOVED... it was not pretty. At the required change interval the oil was spent. Just 2 cents worth, if you are gonna keep it, protect it with the finest.

Wonder who's manufacturing the Amsoil filter?

Re: Mopar Oil Filter
 
My extensive research has shown Amsoil is way overrated, lots of markup on basically inferior oil. The do make some decent gear and fork oils.
