Good Evening Bitogers smile Friend stopped over today as I helped him haul some hay and straw square bales. Filter is off his 2019 Ram 2500 quad cab truck with 6.7 Cummins engine. Oil and filter had 5,3xx miles on them. Refilled with Rotella conventional 10w30 from Rural King and a Federated filter he brought. Looks good to me smile [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Pretty easy. I can fit my hand in thru right hand side front wheel well area. Dont even have to take right front wheel/tire off either.

Fleetguard Stratapore would be a nice fit for that truck. I've cut a few of them open after use on Cummins 6.7's in our school buses, they are practically bulletproof. Our buses are only 250HP, but they idle A LOT. Average fuel mileage of less than 4 MPG so we do shorter OCI's. There is no ADBV on Cummins Filters typically. They mount flange up, so they stay full.

I'm thinking you are correct. Equivalent Fleetguard LF3972, in addition to very similar construction also has same coo. Looks good to me. Thanks for c&p.
