Oil Filter?

I know the cheap oil filters like Fram have problems w/ caving in on themselves & etc. Which filters do y'all run & recommend on the '06s?

I am using the amsoil ea052. No problems yet. Plus, if your engine dies because of an amsoil product, they will apparently cover the repair bill.

I have always used K&N #3003. They are a few dollars more thought.

That is correct, if it is proven that the oil/product caused the malfunction.
