Oil Filters

Coming over from Cummins forum, if you searched it, there was a lot of info on types of oil filters--some better than others (eg Fram)

Baldwin
Donaldson
Amsoil

Some of the names thrown around. Same here?

I currently run Wix Filters but probably changing to a Royal Purple oil filter on the next change.

Napa Gold are Wix filters.

I'd stick to Wix or the 3 mentioned above.

On my previous truck, I ran the Donaldson oil filter and Amsoil by-pass. I've only got 150miles on new truck--so a ways to go before oil change, but I like to plan!

Your K&N is made in Taiwan.

Not that it could be a bad thing.

Cool

I use Fram filters on my cars and trucks and have done so for many years without any problems. I run a K&N Synthetic on my Harley Davidson Fatboy.

You're joking about the Fram right? Please say you're joking.
