    Anybody know if Mopar makes an oil filter wrench to make it easier to take off the oil filters on these cars?
    One of those that fits over the end of the oil filter and you use a socket on it?

    I bought one at the Auto Parts store, but it doesn't fit super well, I almost have to tap it on with a hammer otherwise it falls off. Then I have to pry it off.
    So I need a better one.

    Thanks

    Awesome.
    Love to see old made in USA stamp on there. Clearly the reason it's lasted you 30-40 years. None of the Chinese made crap we all get these days.
    Thanks for the lead.

    Yeah I saw that one before, didn't seem to good to me, so I passed.
    I've also tried those "claw" ones in the past, DO NOT use them, all they do is crush the filter.
    I've also tried those "strap" type things. Just about worthless, they either slip, or you can't get a good angle on them to pull it properly anyway.
    The end cap wrench type ones seem to work the best, if you can get one that fits perfectly.

    Only time that one's deformed anything Ive used it on is when they're super tight. And who cares your tossing filters. I like 1 size fits all.
