I used Fram for 190K and it protected my engine just fine. But they are not made as well as others and I was also younger and dumber than I am now. Just changing the oil routinely was the important thing I guess. I use nothing but WIX on all my stuff now, the make the best filter by far IMO.

The Fram, K&N and Mobil1 have lower efficency as does the mopar( if you don't believe me, read the boxes). The new bosch distance plus filters have a high efficency and are supposed to hold more dirt.

you guys are correct to go with the mopar filter . a few years ago we cut open all leading "off" brand filters,we work at a jeep dealership,and you wouldn"t believe the difference. the mopar filter is far superior to any filter we cut open!! good luck
