Stop by the tractor supply store and pick up some cow belly magnets . Very strong and fairly cheap .

Same here....Napa Gold 1515 (same as Wix 51515) on my 4.0 XJ. Gonna see if the same filter will fit on my wife's 4.7 WJ next oil change too - just realized that they both call for the same stock filter.

NAPA gold 1515(once a year my local NAPA store has a customer appreciation sale and you can buy oil filters by the bulk). I usually buy a case(12). This last time it worked out to $3.44 per filter with tax.

Nothing wrong with Mobil 1 they're good filters, but they aren't significantly better than the WIX/Napa Gold or Purolator PureOne which are about half the price.

Mobil 1 filters are fine if you can get them on sale for around the same price as the Purolator or WIX/Napa but I wouldn't pay extra for one.

On the ZJ and XJ, Mopar or Wix. Fram filters suck and can screw you, so can most other dirt cheap filters like those used by the drive thru oil change shops. Oil pressure issues abound with cheap filters.

Bosch, purolator, Mann, K&N, Fram etc all have the same manufacturing parent companies. You don't know what you're buying until you cut it apart and study it, I don't care enough to do either so I just buy what's on sale at the parts store when it comes time for an oil change.

Although they MAY have the same parent companies or contractors who make the filters, the filter specs are different.

To be safe, Wix or Napa Gold will serve you well. Since our beloved 4.0s have the oil filters mounted upside down and sideways, a good quality filter with a high quality anti-drainback valve is extremely important in ordeer to avoid dry starts.

If you don't want to cut open filters, watch this video. The guy did it for you. When it comes to saving 1 or 2 dollars, oil filters is not where I would be doing it.

Bosch 3500 on my 99. Twice as big and threads right on. Downside is a 7 1/4 quart oil change. But at 3000 miles and 186k miles the oil is still amber colored. I just like the extra capacity.

I use any filter, at any price, from any retailer that has this logo.



This is the Affinia logo, maker of NAPA & Wix filters.

Always used Mopar or Purolater, but might look into picking up one of the larger capacity options on the next change.
