    Been having the dealership change my fuel filters for two years. Decided to do it myself this time. I called the stealer and their parts department wants 79.99 a piece for them, and there's two. Supposedly they have to be OEM filters or the truck won't run. Priced them on Amazon, and they're 100.00 for both of them with free shipping. I knew there was money being made on parts at the stealer, but never realized that it was over 50% and closer to 60%. Guess I'll be buying whatever parts I can on Amazon from now on.

    Wix WF10112 is the same filter, BTW. I always buy Wix or Napa (relabeled Wix, Napa 600112) filters, never had any issue. About $40. Yes, it will run fine on it & warranty stays in effect.

    I don't mind paying more for factory filter for peace of mind. I've always done my own.

    I figure either way I'm taking a diesel bath

    Cummins makes the oem filter mopar just rebadged it.
    Geno's as mentioned or the neerest "Cummins Power," shop,Will have it or they can order it, there the cheapest place to get fleetguard filters I've found.

    I don't know what you are doing 1oldog,
    I hardly get any on my hands when I change mine every 15k

    Ah, ok....

    I love the smell of half burnt diesel on a cold January moring.

    Good old #2 just doesn't give me that kick anymore,

    I run fleetguard fuel filters... Im also running an aftermarket fuel system tho too so its easier to get cheaper filters... I get mine at cost for 25.00 for the filter and water separator they are about 50.00 to the normal customer
