My parents had one of those on their car when they let a local shop change their oil. Nothing exploded but at the same time a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer with a 302 and a PSD are two totally different applications.
Personally, with how cheap MC filters are at wally world I just run those for an oil filter. I know exactly what the specs are and I know they will work well and honestly these trucks don't need to be serviced THAT often so even if brand X is a buck or two cheaper it isn't enough of a savings for me to change. IMHO.
