2012 and up JK oil filters: Be careful what you buy.
Here’s some very important info from JeepCares
that concerns the 2012 and up (3.6 engine) JK’s.
You can/should also check out this thread
that prompted this sticky.
Thanks to JeepCares for this info:
Just an FYI - current MOPAR numbers:
A NEW OIL FILTER IS RELEASED FOR 2014 MODELS THAT INCLUDE A 3.6L / 3.2L OR 3.0L (PENTASTAR FAMILY ENGINE)
The oil filter that was used in the 2013 Pentastar engines WILL NOT work with the 2014 engine.
Using a 2013 filter on 2014 model engines will create an oil leak situation.
