Too bad

I don't know, but it sounds like your dealer just wanted to sell you a filter (no offense intended toward your dealer, that's just what they all do). I hope you get it all working right and Happy Camping!

All is working good, thank you for the well wishes.

I did find the stock filter on amazon for $20 so it is better than their $50 if I stick with the stock filter. Might try the AFE Dry.. Not sure yet. I am shocked there are not more people with a working opinion. I do see how it might not filter "as well". If something flows more freely as ALL the after market filters say they do than my guess they must have larger filter "holes" to let that flow through...

I am leaning towards a drop in over an intake, just because I do not think the truck needs anything else in the world of power.



Looking at either the tried and true KN or an AFE Pro 7 filter. Both are around $80.



I do like the S&B Cold air however, have heard lots of good things about it. Let me know what you all think.. And if any of you ACTUALLY use one of these. thanks.

K&N also has a pre-filter for dusty conditions. Whatever brand you go with, I would get a spare so when one is dirty you can replace it while the other is being cleaned and dried.


Happy Camping!
