No problem.


I guarantee you that the WIX is NOT as good of a filter as the MOPAR/FleetGuard. I sure would NOT bet my warranty on it.

I recently had to prove proper filtration on a MaxCare warranty claim. So let us know how that works for you if you have a filtration related warranty. Chrysler does NOT screw around anymore.

Pic of my new and old filters on a recent change. Both NanoNet that is listed for the 13 and up Cummins 6.7 engine mount filter. Notice how clean the old filter is at 15k usage. The under bed filter/water separator really does it's job well!!! Pic taken from genosgarge.com

They do look good for 15k. I'm too scared to go that long, change oil and fuel at 10k just to be on the safe side.


I’m curious. What are you afraid of? I’ve heard that dirty fuel filters are bad but I have never heard a reasonable explanation as to why. Some of our equipment has pressure (or vacuum) gauges that tell us when to change filters. I usually don’t change fuel filters till the gauge indicates a need or I notice a lack of power …. often that means never.

Give me a break!!! That is not considered a modification. Besides who has bigger Lawyers???

There is a specific spec for the two filters on the newer RAM trucks and if an aftermarket company complies to those specs there is no problem.

As I said the NAPA Gold and WIX do NOT meet the specs.

Good luck with your Magnuson-Moss lawsuit.

I won’t get into the wix filter d!ck swinging contest, but I do agree Ram’s current (since 2014) filter system works as well as designed. Coming from a Dodge that pooped injectors at a little over 100k and required additional aftermarket filtration.
My wix secondary filter looks like 12Vs after 15k (aside from a little red tint lol) of catching fuel that came thru a Wix primary filter.
I am pretty well read and AR about my maintenance and have no issue with 15k filter changes on these trucks. If I was being cheap I might even extend the secondary filter interval.
I was going 20k on my old 5.9 secondary 2 micron filter that was pre filtered by the OE filter. No issues. And Ram basically copied what the aftermarket developed for their previous sub par system.

Also do not discount 12Vs experience. He as well, understands vehicles and maintenance better than most and is not providing false info.

I only use OEM filters on all of my vehicles, and especially my Ram/Cummins pickup. The price difference between them and aftermarket is not significant, and at least I know that I'm getting quality filters. I am fortunate to have a large Cummins dealership nearby where I buy all of the Fleetguard filters for my truck.
