Which Brand?

A buddy of mines wants me to change his tranny fluid and filters for him but doesn't want to pay the dealer price for filters. I told him to suck it up and just stick with Motorcraft we have to go to the dealer for the fluid any way. (nobody stocks mecron sp)

My question, is Mortorcraft the only brand of tranny filters we should use ont he troqushift? Could there be a simmular problem like the other filters?

Almost forgot I'll be working a late 04 6.0

Many other brands filter as well. I have heard however, of several aftermarket filters collapsing. I would stick w/ Motorcraft.
