I went to the auto parts store and got an oil filter.

Didn't fit!

Tried another...still the same!

I finally brought in the old filter. The old filter has much bigger thread opening and overall, is narrower.

The auto parts store said my filter is for some kind of Chevy.

Anyone else see this?

The 3.7L filter is narrower, but the thread hole is the same too-small one for the 4.0L.

Old Filter on the left, newer (for my 4.0L supposedly) on the right. Obvious differences!

Here they are again side by side:

The new WIX did NOT FIT! That STP one on the right is what came off the vehicle.

Mopar filter mo-339 is what I usually get. Now that you say that, I got the last on the shelf the last time. I'm a parts guy for a Mack and Volvo truck dealership and filters have been hard to get a hold of lately.

That looks like that would work. That Mopar filter cross-references to:
