For my 2014 2500 I used Mopar Oil Filters and Fuel Filters from Amazon, even got the Shell T6 Full Syn from Amazon, all shipped for free and price of filters were def. cheaper than the dealer.


2014 SLT 2500.....all stock

Plus they look my truck over each time for potential issues, so far they found a bad rear main seal,covered under warranty,carrier bearing,both front u-joints all warranty

Being deleted and/or running 10,000-15,000 mile OCI is where this filter would benefit you, provided you also do oil analysis to ensure your TBN is good.

I have a new 2016. Would the LF16035 be sufficient for it and would it work on my 2007 5.9? I had been running the donaldson DBL-ELF 7349 on the 5.9. Thanks for the help.

yes it would work for both. however the Donaldson DBL-7349 is the better filter in both flow rating and micron rating.

04 QCLB. 48re, 4x4,08 mega g56, 4x4.

It may not be any better than the others, but Im a firm believer in Rotella 15-w40. Have 2 fords with 43x,000 miles, one with 26x,000 miles, and a few machines over 6000 hours that have been run on Rotella 15-40 since day one and no oil related issues with any of them. I just feel like if it works, no need to change. My Ram will have 15-40 Rotella in it too.
