No that was a ford dealer in 2003 with my Mach 1. I prefer not to let some kid who could care less about my vehicle change my oil. Personally I enjoy changing my oil.

The newer 2013s and all 2014 hemis come with 399 commonly reffered to as caliber filters from factory due to the electric steering . they used to be 899 oil filters. you can still fit an 899 on the trucks they threading is the same. At my dealership we noticed the trucks coming delivered with 399s and thought someone messed up. Called chrysler and this is how they are now

these are part numbers for canada.. btw

I just got my 2013 Ram 2 weeks ago, but the first 4 oil changes are on the dealer and I will take them up on it. After that is over I will just get a case of Mopar filters.

The M1-210 fit my 4X4 without any problems. The electric power steering makes it tight, but I had no problem getting it in there and on the truck. Mine also came with the little small one from the factory.

Be sure and tell your dealer thank you for the straight gauge budget oil they use and some low end filter.

You do understand the QUALITY of the oil is what makes your engine last?
