when I pick out a filter for my jeep I want it to have 99% efficiency @20 micron, i also don't need to it be a long drain interval filter (5k is the most ill ever do) and be somewhat affordable (again im not gonna go 10k miles on a filter so i wont spend 10 bucks many companies charge for top tier filters) and I like it to be made in USA

so for me that comes down to Purolator PureOnes and Fram Tough Guards
I also like the over sized filters since they are the exact same filter just 40% larger which is great since it adds more surface area for oil to pass threw and wont build up too much pressure as easily and go into by pass mode (like when oil is cold and thick) also since it is bigger it holds more junk before getting clogged up. best part is they are the same price as the regular sized filter. I know not every jeep has room for the filter but in my experience every 4.0 TJ does.

so for me that means Purolator PureOne PL30001 or Fram Tough Guard TG8A
these filters are about filtering the best (they filter better then the extended drain filters like mobil 1 and bocsh distance at the cost of not being able to last as long) so for my needs i think they are the best filters. if you were someone to go beyond 7500 miles (which i find dumb on the 4.0) then i would start to look at the top tier filters that are more expensive but don't filter as well. there are no "best filter" just what works for your situation.

Nope, i added EXACTLY 6 quarts (letting the jugs drip out completely....im a cheapo lol) and the oil level is exactly at the full mark. I was surprised how well it turned out! (check the oil on a level surface after the engine has been off for at least an hour, otherwise the level will read low due to the oil taking a while to drain to the pan)
