2014 ram 2500 6.7 Maintenance question

Just purchase my first Diesel, i am very mechanically inclined. I'm looking into fuel filters and oil filters for maintenance. Has anyone tried or heard of

Auto Defender PA6314 DF401 DF410 PG5335-AD Air, Fuel and Oil Filter Combo Pack for Dodge Ram 6.7L (1 Air, 4 Fuel, 2 Oil)?

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01MTY6MID/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I2FIG9BXYXL88I&colid=3A76H2P 4EG27K&psc=0

Found this on amazon.ca and was wondering it was worth it or just go with oem?

I wouldn't recommend using anything but good filters and maintenance supplies. Fleetgaurd filters etc. To me it's just silly to go budget cheap to protect a potentially $10,000 fuel system repair job on a $5 import filter. You kill an injector pump and a set of injectors and not being a mechanic, which this is a complicated job itself and should only be done by someone with the rights tools and knowledge. It's just not worth it.

Ive been using auto defender fuel filters since new on my 16 which now has 189,xxx miles on it.

I do buy Baldwin oil filters and air filters. My Baldwin rep wouldn’t come right out and say yes they are the MOPAR filters without the branding but he did say they’re identical in many ways.

to each his own.
Here’s the reply I received...Pam (DiY Parts, Inc.)Dec 21, 09:28 -05
These Filters are QS9000/ISO9001 certified to meet or exceed OE filtration ratings. The micron rating is 3.

If you have any other questions please let me know.

Thank you!
FYILike other products (batteries, filters, parts) many of our Brand name preferred components are manufactured by third party factories under contract by the “Brand Name”.I’d be the first person to present awareness if I encountered an issue with this or any other products.
