I use the donaldson dbl7349. I did some research on oil filters and decided that Donaldson would be a solid choice to go with.

The LF9028 has a built in bypass filter on one end of the filter. The filter is dimensionally about the same externally. The filter externally appears similar to other filters with the exception that there are no flutes or flats on the end. This means that to remove the filter you need to use a band style wrench. I purchased a band style wrench that has no built in handle on it, but instead accepts a 3/8" socket wrench or 3/8" extension.This filter is able to filter out smaller particles, such as carbon, because of the bypass portion. Because of the in-cylinder EGR inherent in our generation Cummins engine more carbon is released to the engine oil. The filter does cost more, currently $33.29 on Amazon. But you do not have the extra plumbing and filter of an added bypass filter system. I change my oil annually, I thought the added cost was acceptable.
This sounds awesome. I have been looking at the Donaldson Blues. They have a 10 micron rating that’s nice. Also considering a true bypass filter. I drive around 20k a year over a cascade mountain pass and changing my oil every 3 months is extreme. So I’m switching to amsoil 15-40 soon and want a filter system that last 10-15k.

Stepping it up to an Amsoil dual bypass system next. After reading about it on the Amsoil site it’s the only way to go for me. I know there is a lot on here about it starving your engine of oil but that’s just not true and silly. If you get on their site and read about it you will understand how it works. From what I understand the main full flow filter is rated at 20 microns. A small amount constantly goes through the 2 micron bypass filter. I don’t like the install requirements for their single bypass and with the dual you get both filters up where you can easily service them.

The DBL7349 and EaO80 are the same filter with different labels.

I have dual remotes and single remotes. The single remote and a DBL7349 is the cheapest change, and the media is the same.

I have yet to find a good location for a dual remote on a Dodge/Ram, but plenty of good choices for a single remote bypass. The install requirements are no different for single or dual, only the space requirements.

Install is different.

I plan to use the Baldwin BD7317, which has the dual flow vortex (5 micron I think) bypass inside., same as the other.

So you get a bypass and standard filtration just by buying one filter. No need to do the extra work and expense of installing a separate bypass filter. I found ZORO has the best online price for them, got to buy $50 worth to get free shipping.
