Dodge Ram 2003, Pro Guard D2 Oil Filter by aFe®. aFe created the Pro Guard D2 Oil Filter to handle the extreme conditions typically encountered by a heavy-duty diesel truck. Inside it has a synthetic composite material for maximum engine protection with minimal flow restriction. A 600 lb. burst strength canister guards the outside and a welded on 1" outside, 3/8" inside nut/ratchet drive fitting ensures that the filter is easy to remove come maintenance time.
- Synthetic filter media provides maximum engine protection with minimal flow restriction
- 600 lb. burst strength canister for strength and durability
- Withstands high oil pressures
- 1" outside, 3/8" inside nut/ratchet drive fitting welded to canister to facilitate removal
- Anti-backflow valve to reduce damage during cold starts
Except for racing, there are probably no more demanding conditions for an oil filter than those experienced by heavy-duty diesel trucks. Modern turbo diesel engines have high compression levels and tight tolerances, and require high rates of oil flow. aFe's NF21 full synthetic filter media achieves extreme efficiency without sacrificing flow. It provides maximum engine protection with minimal flow restriction. A heavy-duty center tube also helps to provide maximum flow.
But oil flow means little if your oil doesn't stay in the engine; if the canister can't stand up to high pressure or if it's vulnerable to external damage. The Pro Guard D2 canister has a 600 lb. burst strength rating. It's equipped with a heavy-duty coil spring and a 0.100" thick base plate for extra strength. The filter media is wire backed for strength and a heavy-duty nitrile rubber gasket provides a leak proof seal.
And even though the Pro Guard D2 Oil Filter is designed for long service life, aFe didn't forget about filter removal. To make sure you don't have to wrestle with a stuck filter, aFe welded a 1" outside, 3/8" inside nut/ratchet drive fitting to the top of the filter canister. This way the filter can be easily removed with a socket or ratchet.
