A few months ago I ran across a very comprehensive oil filter review but I can't find it now. I posted my question on the forum where I think the review was posted so I'm still waiting for a reply.

I agree with name brand filters, but even some of them like FRAM are no longer a top rated filter. If memory serves me right, Wix, Hastings, Purolator were some of the best filters the guy rated.

I'll update this if I can find the comparison review I'm looking for. BTW... there are several brands that are identical and made by the same maker. All oil filters are not created equal.

'06 Jeep KJ Sport... w/some stuff
'08 Jeep JK X... w/even more stuff

It's an AZ LOST JEEPS thing.........
other folks just don't understand!!
