Safe\Good Deal to buy this Filter Kit?

So I did a forum search and didn't see anyone on here talking about if this was a good idea or not, but it seems like a great deal.

FORD 6.4L TURBO DIESEL OIL FILTER AND FUEL FILTER KIT | eBay

I was looking at getting this kit for the next time I need to change the oil. Two oil filters and one fuel filter for $34 shipped? Seems like a good deal to me! Anyone have any objections or warnings?

Thanks!

If you are still under warranty I would stick to Motorcraft, or racor filters. Racor makes the filters for ford. Those are purolator filters. Both fuel filters, and an oil filter. That company has been around awhile, but I would stick to racors.

Not under warranty anymore, but thanks for the advise. Just seems like a sweet deal to pass up.

Sometimes they are to good to be true. I know you shouldnt always base quality by price, but when it comes to filters I stick pretty close to the big boys.... Racor, baldwin, fleetguard.

Agreed, because when it comes to my expensive truck, I dont see any problem in spending the extra on the good stuff. If these filters are at all sub par, then its a big no for me.

That is a great deal on the filters.....if you feel like taking the gamble? I buy my filters here:
Ford 6.4 Liter Turbo Diesel Truck Filters - Diesel Filters,Additives,brake rotors, and brake pads for Chevy, Dodge and Ford Diesel Trucks

It's about $80 shipped for 1 set of fuel filters and 2 oil filters (both Racor). For me the extra $45 is peace of mind that my 6.4 proper fuel/oil filtration. JM2˘

I've ordered those to compare to a MC or racor filter-- and decided tomru them. They're good filters.
