I am told that this filter is only available at the dealer at a cost of over $100.00. This is a cheap, plastic fliter that has a paper filter inside. I bought their last one. REALLY? This is my first RAM product. While I like the truck , I wonder what other surprises await me. I have heard about the total lack of aftermarket parts for RAM but couldn’t believe it. I am a believer now. Does anyone have a conversion kit or an aftermarket oil filter? I would imagine this is the same crap for water fuel filters, air filters, and any other general maintenance required to properly take care of this investment.

Its NOT Ram, Its Fiat/VM. Are you aware the engine is manufactured in Cento Italy? $100.00 WOW, its $12.00 filter from many Sellers.

Surprises await you. Did you do any research on the VM3.0 its plagued with short comings. The only somewhat aid is decommission (AECD).

Yes I knew about the Fiat / VW / Dodge merger and that the motor was manufactured in Italy. I spoke with over a dozen owners of 2019 thru 2021 ecodiesel owners before I purchased and not one of them had any complaints. All of them enthusiastically praised the quality. The 2018 and below were a different story.

I checked O'Reily, Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, Rock Auto, NAPA, and several others. No one carries these oil filters so please tell me who these many sellers are.
