Air filters should have been spec'd by Mercedes and installed by the chassis manufacturer and are probably a standard part.
Detroit Diesel should have the oil filters.

Your oil filter is probably an external aluminum cannister type with a black cap that unscrews to pull out the cartridge. If you look you'll see it's made by Damlier-Chrysler. The cartridges and readily available at most any auto parts store. I'm certain the air filter is also. Pull it and get a part number.

A tip on that oil filter .... unscrew the black cap and pull it out "straight-up". The cannister is usually mounted at a slight angle. Wedge the element & cap straight up in the cannister and allow to drain for a few minutes. You'll avoid a lot of dripping oil mess this way.

Try Germanfilters.com. They have the OEM filters at much better prices than dealers. I used to buy my Chrysler Crossfire filters from them since it had Mercedes running gear from the SLK. Back then Daimler owned Chrysler

Should be able to find filters at any Freightlliner dealer since Mercedes owns Freightliner.

I think they still do. Americans don't own much anymore. Only one oil company (Marathon) and 2 auto builders. One running shoe company (New Balance) and very little in the technology/electronics arenas.
