That must be where the factories are that make the cartridge filters...

Cool! I'll be switching over to K&N for the oil filter at my next oil change! Interesting on their pleat count more pleats usually means more flow, but you can't compare surface area and flow rates unless you compare the properties of the filter media itself. Makes me curious about if the flow rate could actually change the efficiencies of our motor given it already has a variable displacement oil pump.

I have their engine air filter and now I can only hope they release a re-usable in cabin air filter for the cherokee's.

Yep I bet cartridge filters require special plastic injection molding etc. since there is no old style metal can to support the media. Like you said must be where their factories are with those capabilities.

Thumbs up Mopar-K&N-Fram comparison

We can scratch that theory

I picked up a Fram CH11665 for the 3.2L Jeep at Walmart today for about $6. It has pleat count of 60 (same as MOPAR) and is of a third/different type of construction. The Fram is glued/molded at the ends like the K&N (48 pleat), and says made in USA unlike the other two. The filter media is similar in appearance but possibly different than MOPAR, notice the folds in the pleats look slightly thicker. The seam where the ends of the media meet have a wide gap on the Fram.

There was discussion on BITOG that the Fram was "the same" as the Chrysler, and a Fram rep saying it was, that is not the case but they are very similar.

Just to update anyone still looking for the K&N PS-7026 Oil Filter... it's available for $8.66/each at Amazon.

Interesting note, there is a new part out for the oil filter, revised 68191349AA is now 68191349AB. I will pick up a few for comparison.

I'm counting 62 pleats on the new 68191349AB (Package still says Mopar M0-349), this is up from 60 I counted on the original AA. Otherwise construction is visibly the same at the older Mopar (but different than Fram and the K&N).

It could be a coincidence, but now that I am running the AB version I don't notice rattle at startup as often as with the older AA filter. I'm not sure how the cartridge could have an impact on that though.

Hmmm... I'm intrigued. I just ordered a couple of the ABs, because I hate that startup rattle. I'll let you know if it makes a difference with my engine. I'm using a K&N right now.

Also check e-bay for price. Picked up 3 Mopar filters the AB type for just under $5 inc shipping from a Jeep dealer on the East Coast.
These boxes also state, only for 2014 and later engines. Avoids the confusion of using an identical 2013 filter. That will produce lower oil pressure from what I understand.
The pricing for these filters are all over the board.
I just give the filter to the lube shop when I get my change. Avoids the $15 upcharge for the Mopar filter.
