    Fleetguard Stratapore vs. Fram Ultra

    I don't have my Dodge any more but I was getting a good price on Fleetguard oil and fuel filters at an International truck dealer. Was a little under Geno's at mine. Had to pay tax but it worked out better buying 1 at a time. The Geno's price point should get a little better if you buy 2 or 3...

    7.3L Fuel Filter

    Adding and additional/secondary fuel filter is fairly common in the diesel PU world. There was a guy building bolt on kits for the Chevy/GMC Duramax trucks. I reverse engineered for my Dodge. His went under the bed and used a 2um Cat filter that was about 10-12" long, I used a filter a little...

    Recommend me an oil

    I'm not stuck on the WM Std but it seems to make a lot of sense from a price and availability standpoint. I've never had to do an emergency, right now, oil change but being able to do so with a quick drive rather than waiting for the BBT to show up is worth something nonetheless. The Kendall...

    Recommend me an oil
