I agree. But it's a free market economy we have here...they'll charge whatever they feel they can get. Maybe all the local dealerships got together and did some price fixing for filters....who knows.

PrecisionPowder while the whole cartridge thing is true, that it only comes in one size that does not mean you cannot upgrade. as long as i have been building cars i have always been relocating my oil filters and upgrading to two with an oil cooler. regardless of having a spin on or a cartridge filter. what you need to do is call mocal and have them get you a cartridge style take off plate, some -10an hose, the matching -10an fittings, and then a 3/4x16 stand off plate (single or double) then you can use the most common filter thread out there. you can use the big ford diesel filters, big vw diesel filters etc. or you can pick up some amsoil performance filters. regardless of what you go with you can go with bigger and better filters even though you have a cartridge style filter. if you add an oil cooler that will increase volume as well. not to mention you can mount the filter somewhere more convenient for you to get to with less mess. iv been changing my oil for the last 10 years from the top and i havent crawled under to change the oil for any reason



if you need i have an entire spare HD/Race setup here that is brand new to do just that. i was going to use it on my big turbo diesel but i went with a custom plate and dual filters instead. granted its for 3/4x16 thread screw on filters (vws, fords, the 3.8 wranglers) but you can just get a different take off plate and use all the rest of it

Yeah, less than 1/3 the cost of what O'Reilly's wants FOR THE EXACT DANG FILTER, even before the "MOPARTS" discount code. I ordered 4 along with an in-cabin air filter that O'Reilly's said doesn't exist for the '12 Wrangler.

Vroooom Drat!

Thanks all.

WXman And I think there's like 3 companies that make all the brands. No differences at all.

MikeK46 It's a drop in cartridge style oil filter, you can't upsize it.

jwilson2598 Yep, no upsizing the oil filter on 2012+

3JKs1H1 It's a paper cartridge filter, not the metal can style on the 3.8 - so I think only one size. OEM, NAPA, and Wix are all the same size.

Get Wix air and oil filters from these people, free shipping at $50, no tax and periodic discount codes.

SilverSport AFAIK it only comes in one size. My local Advance, O'Reillys, and Napa all stock it.

Biggest oil filter for a '12?

Anybody run a larger than standard oil filter on your rig?

If so...what size?

OEM size can be troublesom to find sometimes. I reckon a little larger might mean for filtration material....or at least might be easier to find.

Thoughts?
