Oil change on 15 F150 Lariat 5.0 after 7500 mile run. Most of the miles on this truck are easy highway, no towing. Since 2015 this vehicle and a 17 Outback 3.6 have seen about 25 Fram Ultra filters. IIRC only 1 on the 17 Outback looked bad (wavy pleats; no tears) until this one. I'm not jumping ship quite yet but I do have concerns. Unfortunately, I cut through the date code and it is unreadable. Almost all of my filters are off Amazon or Wally since 2015.

Am I having an optical contusion - or are the end caps not parallel ?

slip slide and away!
 
Quite possibly the most ugly oil filter posted this year. Doesnt look like it will make it to 10k.

Is this the first non-wire backed Ultra used on this truck? If not, how'd the other ones look in comparison?

I believe this is the first non-wire backed Ultra I've used on the F150. I have two more non-wire types in my stash.
