Look about 10 posts up from yours. Just in case you can't, it is PH8A. I've used Fram filters for almost 20 years now and never had a problem, but recently, I've switched to K&N Golds. They're well worth the extra few bucks. They're pretty stout and seem to be oversized a little from the standard 8A sized filters.

Let me restate that, most 6 and v-8 filters for ford and chrysler are the same. I have a master catalog from WIX and when I compared most specs are the same,
except length and diameter. Not diesel.

Yeah, for an extra 1.5 quarts, I'd start to get excited and interested.

the way I and someone else read it, you have to change to the standard threads, so there is some effort.

If that isn't true, and all you have to do is buy a larger filter, then you're correct, there is no extra effort.

I run a Mobil 1 ML-301 Over-Sized Filter with Synthetic Oil, with a change interval of every 5,000 miles, and haven't had any problems. For mine, it screwed right on, and I didn't have to do any modifications to the threads. As long as your oil filter is positioned horizontally, no modifications should be necessary to run the larger filter.

if you guys want the number for a 5.0l mustang filter, the motorcraft is the FL1-A.
I use a motorcraft over anything else in my car.

The linked writeup (link in 2nd post in the thread) says in the 5th paragraph: "The following write-up deals primarily with the earlier non-HO engines ('87 to '90) who had the metric oil filter mounted vertically." Ergo, the larger filter option applies to most XJs.

The same writeup is useful for the all-too-common problem of leaking O-rings at the filter adapter.

Personally, I like the larger filter because it is easier to handle. It won't slip past the starter if I drop it while trying to install it. Sometimes I deliberately rest it on the starter before I pick it up and screw it on, and all the wiring & other parts of the Jeep keep it from getting away from me.

Just chainged my oil. Fram PH8. No problems. Of course, while under there, I did notice I cracked my exhaust header.......

I hate it when I'm doing a cheap simple job and find something expensive I have to fix!

Must be the gravel and dirt roads I drive. Oh well.
