Was using XG filters for some time, But I noticed TG's are more for me since I do 4000-5000 mile full syn OCI's and prefer to change the filter after 2 OCI's just for piece of mind. The 99% filtration was the "Cherry on top"

Scored 6 TG3675's for my GMT800's @ $3.66 each+tax-5% RA discount code. The shipping was blended in with other parts in my cart

Looks like only the TG3675, TG43, TG8081 and TG12060 are available on their site (LINK)

edit: seems there are others available, but not showing up through their search. The TG2 is available, but for regular price ($6.46).

FYI Mr. 540ratblog gave the ToughGuard a D rating.

He gave the FL-820 an A rating LOL
No idea who/what Mr.540ratblog is. And with this advice, don't care to know either.

The Fram hate is still very strong online. Not going to change their minds either.

TG3387A is on closeout also. Strange why they don't come up in search.

No bargain if you ask me-- just looking at the list for one of my vehicles, I see a couple others I'd rather have than a TG for < $4. But if I were shopping closeout parts and had other parts in the cart from the same warehouse, I'd probably add a couple. At $4 you can do a whole lot worse, they're actually decent filters if you can get past the "cardboard" end caps. Personally, the end caps don't bother me.
