Midwest Wal-Marts.
The slowest selling filter in the world, I don't think my local WM sold one in the 2 plus years they were on the shelf.
Picked up 2 for the 6.7 Scorpion tonight.
All of them were marked at 5.00, Cummins, DMax, PSD.
I do not recommend 6.0 owners run the Rotella filter. It's about 2mm short, has a bypass ball on top that is not like factory, and the bottom seal is thin.
YMMV, 5.00 might be all someone has.

I believe it is just a purolator classic with the rotella branding.

It would help if they had a book or working computer to tell you what filter fits your truck.

Hope they are decent as I picked up three at $4 each for the 99 Ford 7.3 as Walmart here just had a store remodel.

I personally would never run them after the Purolator tearing, you should definitely cut one open after a short run to check for damage

There is a small chart on the filter box.
If you know your factory filter number, like FL-2051, you can get the right filter.

Google on a smart phone works too.

Those are HUGE and pretty hard to mix up with anything else!
