I agree. Fram is poor quality crap. Purolater, Wix, K&N and Mobil all make their own filters and are of higher quality. Even with a Mopar filter, you're never sure who is currently making them.

But, this may have changed, but, Champion Labs make good filters

The info I found said they're both making their own. Either way, both filters have gotten excellent reviews on every test I've seen on them. Of course you can't go wrong with Wix. I ran their oil and fuel filters on my drag car with excellent results.

Who makes Mopar filters?
I have always used NAPA or OEM..

Mopar filters change from time to time depending on who the contract is with. I'm not sure who currently has it.

The new Bosch DP series seems to be a very good design. Bought one today and was surprise how much heavier it felt compare to the Purolator PureOne I normally use.

I've always had the understanding that Hastings was one of the better ones out there .

I always use Purolator Pure One Gold. I know Purolator is a great filter, but I'll pay extra for that grip treatment. It makes my life MUCH easier. I use expensive filters, and cheap oil! LOL
