I have purchased some Mopar oil filters, which I plan on using, but I found the after market filters are available now.
Mopar 4884900AB
K&N HP-1017
STP S10060
Fram PH10060
Mobil 1 M1-113
Purolator L12222
WIX 57073
Champion Laboratories PH48
What are you using and why? Which is the best filter to use?
I have though of purchasing them to perform some testing to determine which is better, but I don’t have any test equipment, other than just sawing them in half and looking at them. Any ideas? Suggestions?

Speaking of oil filters thanks to user sgodun I recently found out about this to use with your filter. I'm thinking about ordering one, just waiting to find out if other friends of mine want to order with me to save on shipping.

Fram and STP are the same filter I believe. They're bottom of the line as already mentoned. My choices are the Mopar or Mobile 1.

I used the Purolator on my last oil change as that was the only aftermarket I could find at the time.. I have no problems witht the Purolator line and I will probably continue with them..

Not sure where to get the Mobil1 filter, but having used both the K&N and Mobil1 filters on my truck, except for the printing on the outside and the 1" hex on the K&N, they are identicle internally.
