2014 Ecodiesel AFE Filter

Finally replaced the crappy standard Jeep air filter (orange one) today with the AFE washable filter. A huge quality improvement over the factory unit that keeps splitting around the edge. Jeep should have fitted this as standard.

Listed as a direct replacement: http://afepower.com/shop/details_new...sel&brandID=59

It is much heavier and stiffer than the factory one. Pretty sure they also make a Ram specific filter too.

I was at the dealer and showed him the splitting. He thought it would be ok as is since the case is clamped down so tight that it shouldn't leak unfiltered air. However, his personal theory was that the filter used in this Eco is the same filter for all WKs and engines back to 2006 or so. He thinks the filter is just not designed for the amount of air the diesel wants to pull, especially when that turbo gets going. He recommended trying to find a aftermarket dry filter that could handle some additional flow and it looks like the AFE Pro Dry S is exactly that. They do have 2 oiled filters that are available, but I don't wanna deal with the extra hassle.

So I got mine on Amazon today with a 15% off coupon and 2 day shipping! Looks like they have 4 left right now!

I keep checking the new filter the dealer installed, due to the original being sliced and torn on the sides, the day I see another tear, I'll be back asking for a new replacement. IMHO, we should not be looking to solve their missconception issues. I also agree with the strong pull of the Diesel, what else can it be? Pinched? It would not tear this way, be more of a cut.

If I had to guess, the cheap orange rubber foam on the edges is garbage and just doesn't have the structural integrity to hold up to this diesel and its air draw. I mean there is foam rubber on toothbrush handles that is tougher than this crap filter. I can envision the filter in there bowed up as the engine trys to suck enough air through it and the filter getting bent all to hell.

Well, returned to the dealer today. My second Air filter, which they had already replaced at 4000k or so ( torn on the sides )...was changed again today for a new one! Again some cracks were starting... at my third AIR FILTER, lets see how long this one will last!
