So just finished a 4 day jeep event in very dusty conditions. I want to replace my air and cabin filters and can't find Fram filters for my Gladiator anywhere. I have always used Fram and just can't believe they are not available. Anybody have luck finding them? I just don't trust cheap Amazon filters and the dealer price is just crazy high for OEM.

You can find the MOPAR filters on Rockauto also. There is also other reputable brands like WIX, AC Delco and Hastings/Baldwin for the air filters that are just as good.

Agreed. And as I've posted comparisons elsewhere, the AC/Delco air filters come out very well both in life and in catching the bad stuff.
I found it interesting how filthy my cabin filter was at less than 20,000 miles - but then this is Iowa and we had a lot of dust in the air and smoke from Canadian fires, dust from harvest and the KS wind storms.

I had good experience using AC/Delco aftermarket on non GM products. While AC/Delco is basically a branding company nowadays and manufactures very little themselves, they ensure what they sell is up to snuff and back it.

None of the brands mentioned to even include Fram will manufacture their whole catalog for filtration products. They all cross pollinate and manufacture or source from each other to even out their catalog offerings.

I refuse to use anything Fram...

Wix or Mopar is what I use on both the TJ and JT.

Not a Fram guy- when I ran parts stores, I saw some examples of their oil filter failures, so I avoid their products all together. For air, I've been using K&N for well over 20 years, and have always been happy.

Yep, I had a close friend lose an AMC 360 in a Wagoneer when a Fram filter failed, and another acquaintance lost a 4AGE in a Toyota.

I used Fram all the time before that, and never since. (This was all in the early 2000's)

@Artsifrtsi that's the same time frame that I was seeing this issues.

I'll never let a K&N touch my cars...................

Scientific dyno tests in a closed room:

They not only pass more dirt, they reach capacity faster (and become more restrictive)

^ This too. When I first bought my '85 MR2 PO had installed a "cold air" intake with K&N... that tubing and the TB was full of dirt stuck to all the surfaces. After thorough cleaning, everything finally worked again as it should have.
