Did you try the Vehicle Part Finder on the Bosch web site?

I suppose I should have gone to the Bosch site. Didnt mean to clog up the message board.
Thanks for the answer though.

I didn't say you were clogging the site, just that it's often quicker to just look at the mfg site, rather than waiting around for someone to reply.

If you want even a better oil filter use either the KN 3001 or the Mobil1-301, they are about 40% larger in volumn and have a much better filter media and valve, and yes, they will cost you more and they are worth it.

What's NAPA selling them for now? It's been a long time since I used them. I've been using the WIX 51515 which I was getting for about $4.50, which was less than NAPA last time I checked (years ago).
But I've since switched to the Baldwin B2 because I got them for $3.50. A pretty damn good price for a top rated filter.

I buy them when they are BOGO, so $3 each.

One of my customers is a farm tractor repair/supply shop, I am going to see what brand of filters they carry and try to cross reference the NAPA to see if I can get a Baldwin or Fleetguard.

Purolator is my backup brand if I miss the sale at NAPA.

I can get the NAPA filters for about $2 ea if I have our mechanic order them but then I have to buy a whole case and thats almost 6 years worth of oil changes, and lets be honest, is my truck going to last 6 more years?
