I stated why I don't like Fram...Let me ask you this Janster, When you bought your truck, why did you pick Toyota and not say Ford, Chevy or Nissan or even Dodge? Was one of the reasons the Toyota name and reliability? Well I say if I had $4 to spend on an oil filter, I would want to buy the best built, most reliable filter, and based on research it's not Fram. Would you rather have the end caps of your filter be made of cardboard or solid metal? Due to the presure the oil filter faces, I prefer metal that holds up. What happens if cardboard gets wet? Falls apart huh. I choose not to buy Fram as do many of the poster on this site. No need to get petty or upset about it. If the OP bothered to ask the question, he probably wants an educated opinion. If Fram floats your boat and you sleep at night...good for you, it's your money. I can care less what oil filter you choose to use I am not here to change your mind.
And you call it an *educated oppinion* by who's standards? Did you talk with the engineers & designers of Fram? Ford? Chevy? Nissan? Or even Dodge?
I'll admit, that's one pet peeve I have about forums/internet. Bashing in general.... If you're engine blew-up because you prooved that a Fram filter was the fault of it - then you'd have the right to argue it's a poor filter.
