Filters Where's the Best Deal

Ok, I'm tired of lining my dealers pocket with work I can do myself. Anyhow, just wondering where I can get the best deal on oil, fuel and air filters for my 6.0 PSD.

Wix makes good filters, and i would try going to a few of your local parts stores, napa is generally good in the larger populated areas, and the guys in there generally know their stuff fairly good, parts source ain't to bad, plus you might even want to try the parts centre at various dealerships.

Too overprices at the dealership. Like and oil filter needs to cost $90 and fuel filters $200! I'm beginning to question if I can afford the maintenance on my Power Stroke

yeah you are going to pay more for the diseal filters, on that note go check out the places that specify in big truck parts, i know we saved about half by going from a local parts store to a big rig dealer for filters.

For oil check out UFA, we've been getting oil there for as long as i can remember. Theres one on yellowhead right around 50th street.

Betcha ya didn't know that the dana corporation owns/is the parent company of wix (you know the one thats makes all the driveline components). Yeah its to bad that the farm gas you can get from is of such poor quality, 85octane on a good day.

Smile ..try to shop close to..,

...you said..,
'Anyhow, just wondering where I can get the best deal on oil, fuel and air filters for my 6.0 PSD'.
..my opinion..,
I keep three rides on the road this time of year and I really have to stay on top of things when it comes to regular maintanence.
I try to shop close to my general area, and that lets me choose between;
(all range within a maximum 7.5 mile radius of home)
1) NAPA - like them
2) AutoValue - reasonable to a degree
3) MoPak - great selection of goods (higher end/higher $$$)
4) Jobbers (x2) - reasonable
5) Crappy Tire - for small stuff, consumables, etc.
==================
..my advice..,
1) if you're looking for quality, look to the performance shops.
2) if you're looking for 'best chance of success', go to the jobbers, they've
usually got the unit in-stock, or they can have pretty much one of
whatever you're looking for dispatched in either sme day, or tomorrow
morning kind of thing.
3) if you're looking for just get done, go to CrappyTire. (well actually, that's
not entirely true. They do have a good selection of Top Brand Oil, Fuel, Air
and other filters available. I don't think I'd want to have have anything
serious done by them, but, small stuff, consumables, that kind of thing, so
what.

After a while, you get a good relationship with these fellas and they just pipeline you into their network, you search your parts, 'no'.., 'yes' 'OK'
Make the deal, arrange pickup/delivery, and away you go. ((IN A DREAM))

Shopping around is the best route with out a doubt.
