So after watching Youtube videos and it being clear as mud, I decided to buy a bunch of 392 oil filters, cut them apart and take a look.
I like the Fram XG10060 or Wix 57060XP (in small 339 form factor) or Wix 57899XP (in large 899/041 form factor).

Wix 57899XP is winner for me. I could not find a Mopar 041 to dissect. I did not do any editing on video, so it is not very good from cinematography standpoint. I had phone in 1 hand and filters in other. If anyone has any questions, I'll answer them if I can..

Not hating on oil filters, except maybe the Fram TG10060:poop:, just putting some info out there if folks want to make a little more of an informed decision on what filter to get.
I was surprised that the some of the aftermarket filters were much nicer than the oem filter.


 
That was very helpful sir. I wonder if my dealership will install a Wix 57899XP if I bring it in during my first "free" Jeep Wave oil change? I know I will insist on Pennzoil Ultra 0W-40 that is listed in the manual. If not then they can keep their free oil change and I do it correctly myself.

Again, thank you for taking the time (and $) to do all that, and share your results. :)(y)
 
Thank you so much @hardhat for making the comparison! I’ll follow your recommendation and will use Wix 57899XP or Fram XG10060 in my 392 :)
 
Thanks Hardhat! I too will use the Wix 57899 XP. Any thoughts on oil brands?
 
Ordered a case of Wix 57899XP filters today from Rock Auto.

This is very interesting. I saw the episode on Engine Masters. I use Napa filters which are made by Wix.
 
Been a believer in wix filters for a long time. Use them on my 3.6 jeep and my old hot rod.
 
Here is the Mopar 041 filter cut open. It does not have the synthetic media. It is just cardboard. Appears to be a rubber anti-drain back valve but it does have the coil spring. My money is still on the wix XP version of the 899
