When i bought my '09 Ram in early '09, the dealerships were using Mobile conventional oil in their service bays
sometime in '10 the dealers were using Valvoline in the service bays
either in April or May of this year, another contract was signed, now Shell Oil supplies the dealers with Pennzoil for the service bay for gas engines, Rotella for diesels

i don't get my oil filters at Walmart, just my oil,

i go to Oriellys to get a WIX

NAPA Gold AND CarQuest Premium ARE the regular Wix.
AMSOIL is now also selling WIX filters

a oil filter study done in 2008, check out DANA/WIX manufacturer

I suggest thinking twice before buying from manufacturer Honeywell/Allied Signal oil filters
