NAPA=Wix????

I was told the "Napa Gold" was made by Wix and is the same as the Wix filter for a 2010 JK. Is this true?

Purolator - L10241
Napa - 1348
Bosch - 3330

Extended Length
Mobil 1 - M1-209
K&N - HP2009

thank you for posting the list, have any of you guys used the extended filters? how much more oil does it hold when you do a change? this will be my first change (the dealer did the first one free, this will be my first one)

i've worked at napa for 11 years now. napa gold is made by wix. i went to classes on filters awhile back. i can assure you that the wix and napa gold filters are some of the best filters on the planet... the napa pro select filters are a cheaper grade. stay away from them. pay the extra couple bucks and get the napa gold...

I use extended Napa gold filter. It might hold a cup more oil. I still change the oil with 6 qts.

Good Thread!

Rirrgang- Why do you say it's a good idea to use the extended oil filter?
