I guess to make it more complex, I grabbed an Extra Guard PH5, Tough Guard TG5, and an Ultra XG5 to cut open and measure the square inches of the media (working on a project for my Wrangler).
The date code on the XG was A30191 which I take to mean January 19, 2023 as I am assuming that Walmart would not have a 10-year-old filter on the shelf.
It had wire backed original synthetic media.
The latest XG11665 cartridge filters for my Jeep are not even close to the quality of the Korean (white media filters). It would tear with very little resistance (I fully understand that you would not try to tear media as a normal exercise), but I am not a fan of them at first glance.
