hopefully, the more out their the better.yep. bring in more parts for this motor. hopefully the increase in competition in parts being carried will lower prices.
FYI - Oil filters for the Grand Cherokee will not fit the Ram 1500 3.0L.well considering noone has the 1500 diesel yet if you want to stock up on filters just buy the GC diesel ones.
though I'd wait.. once the ram diesel IS out I'm sure we will see more vendors carrying maintenance items for this engine. I'm sure the diesel ram will outsell the diesel gc.
That's interesting. Most of the articles I've read says it's the same engine. It's tuned a bit differently so maybe that's why it needs a different filter.FYI - Oil filters for the Grand Cherokee will not fit the Ram 1500 3.0L.

That looks quite similar to the oil filter housing that is found in my Sprinter. I make less of a mess changing the oil in that vehicle than I do on one of the domestics.Yep, you can see the oil canister where the drop in filter will go.

tell me about it, and working on it yourself in your drive way or garage without a hydraulic lift makes it worst with the awkward hand position.well that is a good thing. i've dealt with too many engines that had their oil filters tucked in the most inconvenient places ever.
Ramps help!i dont really find myself needing a lift. im not a huge guy so i can fit under the car. i also have some nice ramps i got so if its really tight in there i just drive up the ramps
