Yes Royal Purple filters are spun micro glass, they will out last your oil for sure, I've cut them open after 14 months, still pliable. I would check out walmart penzoil synthetics, jugs are great value. Dont get the walmart synthetic, no moly for sure. Also, M1 costco deal I believe is still going and continues to be the best deal in oil. If you get hemi tick, plug into syn thread. 7 quarts for the hemi.

Just make sure you get an oil with moly in it, you can look at the list here, and scroll down to molybdenum. I like 5w30 as well.

Is Mobil 1 oil OK?! I hope so as I just ordered 2 cases off amazon... I also had an extra KN oil filter from my chevy that is the same part # as the ram. Guess I shouldn't be using that.

In Canada, you can get Fram Ultra filters and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum right in Canadian Tire.
