It's not Ram's fault imo, more Mobil's if I am reading your post correctly??

Just get the proper filter like AirborneSilva posted below and your problem is solved.

Thanks for the link, hopefully the Car Quest filter is basically the same size, or close to it as I too would rather run a larger one than the factory installed small one.

I got 2 free oil/filter changes from my dealer and haven't used them yet but if their regular price is cheaper than what I can do one for then I will definitely be letting them do it, time permitting.

I use the k&n gold filter pt# HP2010 on my Ram and the Challenger I had before it with no issues. Its atleast twice the size but the gasket is the same and seals up just fine. Just have to add about another .5 quart of oil and its good to go.

His truck has the 5.7L hemi.

I don't know, maybe the dealer isn't charging us the supposed additional charges that are stated in the fine print, maybe its a regional thing or something, but this has been my experience. Not trying to call anyone a liar or anything, just saying I would at least recommend that y'all ask your service departments how much it would be for your truck before assuming that it won't save you money.
What dealership do you use, I may have to check them out if I'm in a hurry and can't order oil or if I get lazy. Even if they do an oil change for $20 bucks I'd still rather put Amsoil in at 3 times the price but that's just me I guess...

We go to Ancira for service. Or I should say he does, I haven't needed service yet.

Yeah Ancira is my choice as well, will have to take a closer look at their fliers but I know I've seen the fine print before say that Hemi's were an extra charge.

Default I have to agree, this is somewhat childish

Airborne - I have to agree. There are so many oil filters that will fit the RAM. Then we have two board members post up exact oil filter numbers, perfectly good oil filters to boot, but yet he still seems confused, when other people were trying to simplify the oil filter selection.

The thread pitch (standardized) and the gasket interface (size) - it could be measured with calipers.

Never seen this in all the people I've taught how to change their oil. And the FIRST thing I show: remove the filter FIRST and verify that the gasket detached with the filter.

Just wanted to update this post as it popped into my head as soon as I got to my filter. Went to do a change this weekend and noticed the same, the Stocker was smaller then the Royal Purple filter I was installing. At first I was worried, because it was significantly larger (RP), but after removing the Mopar and comparing the seal dimensions, they were identical. Seems that the aftermarket filter, and I'd imagine even the designated Mopar (besides factory installed) filter are larger and extend well beyond the rubber seal washer, where the factory unit basically stops there. New filter installed fine and was able to get a wrench on it for snugging. I will say too, that location is horrible!

Firemarhshallvin - lots of people don't quite comprehend it's the rubber gasket that seals the filter to the engine, even If the oil filter "can" dimensions are different.
I ginny pigged two Royal Purple filters - you'll find that the RP filters, even if a touch pricey, do a fabulous job of keeping the oil clean

The mobil M1-210 fits just fine I've got it on my truck right now. So what if the edge is wider that is not what seals, its the rubber gasket. The M1-210's gasket is the same size as the factory one. Mine has not leaked one drop of oil, it works perfectly & I have the 6 speed also.
