I am obsessive compulsive. What filter???

Just to give you some peace of mind the owners manual is what matters as far as following required maintenance while you’re under warranty. Dealers will often upsell or do the bare minimum or “require” service items that aren't actually “required” at all. Ultimately it’s Jeep who actually warranties the vehicle… not the dealer.

The owners manual says “Recommend Mopar oil filter or equivalent” there’s zero “requirement” to use the M0-339. You obviously can and it’s not a big deal if you do, but there’s other options that are better filters. Some dealers will just follow the service manual and another dealer will use other available Mopar options for filters if you ask.

You can always just do it yourself as long as you’re using an equivalent product. Service departments are all franchises just like the sales side. I often trust none of them. Most of them simply care about their bottom line which means they do what is the most efficient for time and cost effective for them… not what is necessarily best for your vehicle.

Just some food for thought using a different filter doesn’t void your warranty. Mopar doesn’t actually make any filters, another vendor manufactures them for them and slaps Mopar on the filter. View attachment 37091

Incredible post. Thank you very much. I plan on avoiding the dealer as much as possible (especially after todays interaction) and just being to stay warranty compliant. And it appears that according to your post, I have options. NICE. Thanks!

Went to the local dealer and they wouldn't tell me an oil filter part number haha! Laughable. I gave my vin and they clearly were afraid of me shopping the part online. I said i Just needed the last three digits so I know what filter they'd use in my vehicle for the free service, but still nope. Trash.
 
Rubber type o ring pressed or crimped onto filter. Always check to make sure it is on the old filter when you remove it. How ever I have been changing the oil in all my vehicles for 48 years and never once have one of those rubber gaskets not come off with the filter as they should. But I always check. When I was 16 and just starting out an old timer at a Napa auto parts told me to always check so I do. Now I feel like I’m the old timer.
I had one stick on an 05 Duramax! Oil all over the driveway on startup. I felt stupid for not looking. It wasn't mine though. Can't remember a time I felt more stupid in front of my friends.
 
Ah so the other shoe drops! I appreciate the tip. Now I know what I am looking for on the site. Good stuff. Thank you
Put the MO-041 SRT filter (part number 5038041AA) on it and stop worrying.

Shit happens. Watch the AFV video of the husband videoing he’s wife changing the oil on there what I believe to be truck. As she is holding a 5qrt container on top of her chest , the truck holds 7 quarts . I’m still laughing . 😂🤣 I think they won 20k.

now I have to find that
 
Also to help you with your dealer troubles… Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act says that if a specific part is required to maintain warranty then it needs to provided for free to you. So they are simply trying to fool you.

Thanks. Biggest trouble with the dealer, is finding a good one. Just going to try and stick to the book, do it myself, and document it. I can't trust them at all.
 
Umm, gents does this look intact to you all? Stock filter showed up in a half eaten envelope. I think its good but rather not find out once its on the Jeep.

Looks fine to me. Also you can add your maintenance history to the Jeep App. That’s what I do

Hey. Just wanted to say thanks again for this tip. Being able to add stuff like this to the Mopar site is incredibly helpful. Thank you.

No problem
 
Make sure you keep all receipts for oil and filter. It's required by the dealer to obtain proof when you have an engine failure/issue for warranty claim.

Not the least bit accurate. There is no legal or contractual requirement to show any receipts for service you've done yourself in the event of a catastrophic failure.

What? My dealer lied to me! Lol
Perhaps legally. However they do ask for receipts, so just be prepared.
 
What’s the advantage of using the larger sized filters(899 or 041)? Is it just more oil being filtered at any given time? Any fitment issues with the larger filters? Thanks.
