Please for the love of god dont put a fram filter on your truck ever again.

Those things are crap. Purolator Pure One and Mobil 1 are the best you can get.

Oil Filter Comparison]Years ago Fram was a quality filter manufacturer. Now their standard filter (the radioactive-orange cans) is one of the worst out there. It features cardboard end caps for the filter element that are glued in place. The rubber anti-drainback valve seals against the cardboard and frequently leaks, causing dirty oil to drain back into the pan. The bypass valves are plastic and are sometimes not molded correctly, which allows them to leak all the time. The stamped-metal threaded end is weakly constructed and it has smaller and fewer oil inlet holes, which may restrict flow. I had one of these filters fail in my previous car. The filter element collapsed and bits of filter and glue were circulating through my system. The oil passage to the head became blocked and the head got so hot from oil starvation that it actually melted the vacuum lines connected to it as well as the wires near it.

replaced, re-did the interior neon light wires cause the idiot before me who installed this left wires w/o insulation exposed, and did a real crappy job on almost ALL of it, talk about 2-3 hours of frustration in a small crouched space
