NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!

Don't do it! I don't care what the package says but it for sure does not apply to the 6.0. ONLY use the MOTORCRAFT OR RACOR filters for these trucks. Don't use Wicks, Napa, or any walmart special. The Ford/Racor filter is patented to a very specific tolerance that no other filter meets, which can cause oil to be partially or in extreme cases completely bypassed and cause some serious damage to your engine. Just read some posts on here about oil filters and you will quickly learn why to only use the Ford filter!

I'm sure others will agree...

The Fram filter is the same as the Racor/Ford.

From what I understand the Fram is just a rebranded Racor. Fram decided the liability to use a non patented filter in these engines was not worth it so the made a deal with Racor to supply them.

Take a Fram & Motorcraft filter out of the box at Wally Workd and they are identical right down to the patent numbers on top. The only difference is the Fram is one dollar cheaper than the Motorcraft.

Then pay less (around $18) at walmart, or Dieselfiltersonline.com, or get them from International. Frams are OEMs also as Shooter said ..... you can get them at a bunch of places.

It would be a bad idea to stray from motorcraft/racor filters.

So last night I was in Wally World and stopped by the oil filter section for a side by side comparison. They had three filters that would fit the 6.0 liter.
  • Fram CH9549 Standard filter offered by Fram
  • Fram TG9549 Upgraded filter offered by Fram
  • Motorcraft FL-2016 / Ford 3C3Z-6731-AB OEM filter

I compared Motorcraft to the ToughGuard, and they were identical. Same height, same end plates, identical numbers stamped on the endplates, except Fram had added their part number to the ToughGuard filter. There was no notible difference in the two filters.

Then I compared the Standard Fram CH9549 to the ToughGuard. There is a clear difference. The endcaps are different. The height isn't the same. And the standard Fram has no patent numbers on it anywhere. In the past, I've found genuine Racor filter in CH9549 boxes, clearly that is no longer the case.
