Default Oil Filter Size

Looking at doing a double oil filter relocation to the main engine bay area to make it easier to do the filter change and more filtration. Does anybody know what size the thread is and the inside and outside diameter of the flange is?

Too lazy to go out and find one and I'm sure somebody has done this before. Also, don't want to have to go out and find a new filter just to measure the size.

Found the answer to my question with a bit of research...

For anyone else wanting to do a single/double remote install and are questioning what size to do, here is a great site that has a great product from what I've heard and very helpful site:

id like to see your plans for this and where you are going to put it, the 5.2, 5.9, 3.9 oil filter is in a pretty good spot and is mounted rather easy to get to (clean oil changes) IMO, especially compared to the 4.7 (ok the 4.7 isnt hard to get to, just messy cause its mounted on an angle instead of being verticle)

Honestly I hate the spot they chose for the filter. I plan on puting it near the area where my air box is (doing spectre CAI) at same time and mounting it vertical. IMO it's always such a PITA getting the filter off if I'm just crawling under it no lift.

I did a few oil changes on my 4.7 and the first few times there was oil everywhere! LOL! especially the skid plates! There would be like a quart just sitting on top of the plates! Then I discovered a neat trick, okay someone posted this trick. You use an empty 2 liter soda bottle, cut the bottom off and angle cut the bottom some more so you can reach up to the filter, crack the filter and let the old oil drain out into the bottle and have the oil catcher located under the mouth of the bottle. Took me a few tries until I found the right angle but now no more oil slicked skid plates! On yeah, use Mobil 1 Fully synthetic 10w30 for your oil.

Yeah it's definitely a PITA doing it that way on the Durango (at least from what I've experienced) at least on a 2WD.

What I have to do is get under it and use the filter wrench to break the filter loose and then get it off and usually it gets everywhere. This is why I'm looking at doing the remote filter.

The only thing I dislike about those is the connections always seem to leak. I don't know about this one in detail, but I have seen many of those relocated ones leaky.

Yes hydra you make a valid point and that's the one thing I worry about with this. Definitely doing some more research and if I do go this route using plenty of Teflon! LOL

You should also do an oil cooler as well then. I don't know too much about the dual set ups, please feel free to enlighten us.
