    It all depends on how long you want to run your oil. If you are dumping in 3000 mi then sure they will work.

    I prefer to have a better filtration for my truck. The Royal Purple 10-48 or 20-820 and their Amsoil Equivalents is the best in the business.

    You spent good money on your truck, spending good money on the best oil and filters for it shouldn’t be an issue.

    6.4 likes quality oil and good filters. PUP, Redline or Amsoil in 0W-40/5W-40. Royal Purple, Amsoil, or Fram Ultra Synthetic filters. All I would run.

    The specs Pennzoil publishes for the Platinum filters look good. If you have it I’d run it.

    Pennzoil oil products are really good. Ultra Platinum is fantastic, just not as available as other products. Pennzoil is made by Shell Oil Products US, same folks who give us Rotella that all the diesel guys swear by.

    Buy from the dealer to get the right stuff. Plus you support the local economy. Win win.

    ... my local Ram dealer charged me $110 for 8 quarts of oil & a filter... I'll be shopping around next time. A couple of days later, I get a coupon in the mail for an oil change for $69.95... including tire rotation... from the dealer I purchased from (45 min. away).

    I’m sure they will up charge that with your synthetic oil when you get there.

    The bigger filter is for the 5.7 right? The one in the picture. Is there a benefit to running the large filter. Don’t understand how my 6.4 uses same filter as my dart. Is the pennzoil platinum he filters good.

    This is the best (and only) deal I’ve found for PUP. Otherwise it’s nigh-unobtainium. So... I’ll continue to buy whatever name brand synthetic 0w40 is on sale at Canadian Tire.

    Rockauto always has good deals on wix filters.
