Be aware, oil filter design for 2014+ V6 has changed!
 
Quote:

Chrysler has quietly changed the oil filters and cap O-rings used on the Pentastar V6 engines from 2011-13s part number 68109834AA to 68191349AA on 2014 models.

The change, which Andy told us affected all Pentastar V6 engines, may have coincided with changes to the oil cooler; however, it might be more likely that it was done to reduce confusion and inventories, since the VM V6 diesel engine used by Chrysler also saw a redesign of the filter and cap O-rings, to the same part number as the gasoline V6. This means that dealers can stock a single filter-and-gasket kit for all Grand Cherokee V6 engines, diesel and gasoline alike unless, of course, they are from the 2011 to 2013 model years.

The Hemi filters are unchanged. Using the wrong part will cause an oil leak.
News: Chrysler changes V6 oil filters

So using a 2014 filter on a 2011-2013 will cause an oil leak. Yikes! Going to have be be really careful for DIY's like me when it's time to buy the filter at the dealer.
