There's certainly room to use the filter for non electric steering trucks. I forget the number, but I had one left over from my last Hemi Jeep that I crammed into the stock location, once. It'll definitely fit with this kit, I'll likely do that on my next change.

Hi @PCA4208 thanks for the write up.

Do you use the larger filters? xg2 RP 20-820? It looks like they would fit just fine, just curious if any hands on experience.

Thanks!

I'm sure you could get a larger oil filter, possibly add to your capacity by .5 quart or so. I may be adding one on the next oil change but for now I am using a Wix stock replacement size filter.

Sorry i'm referring to the MO399 vs MO599 filter sizes that have been discussed in the Oil filter thread, post 712 on page 72 by @HEMIMANN.

fyi - the Wix filters were discussed as subpar.

I think the bigger spec filters should fit; they're 3.65" OD vs 3"

Right, the filter specd for the Hemi prior to electric steering. My old 08 Jeep Grand took the metric filter in the larger size which can still be used on these later 4th gen Rams but is a real honest pita to deal with.

Just look up the filter of your choice but for, say, a 2011 ram.

I love the quality look this extender has; it seems first class all the way. The only thing that bugs me is that the filter is down low. I know the frame sticks down lower, but still it makes me scratch my head a little bit and wonder if there is an alternate location where it could go. I think I will crawl around under the hood later today when Mr. Evil Sun takes a break.

Pictures don't do it much justice. The bumper on the truck is much lower than the filter. The kit is made to bolt to that frame horn piece. I'm sure you could mount it up higher if you're that worried. For me its perfect, mostly because I didn't have to go drilling holes in the frame.

I had that concern as well, but like you said, the pics don't show with any reference to "bumper" clearance, or even like the diff's/sways/axles/whatever... (had a brain fart half way through trying to think of what might be lower that we just don't see.)
