    I'm thinking it's worth it. I just ordered one yesterday.

    I'm a victim of advertising banners on this site and too much $$ sitting in my paypal account..:mad:

    I bought one of AFE's Dry Filters and have the deck plate mod as well. I really like it because you don't have to oil it.

    It's done a very quality job of keeping dirt/dust out of the intake/engine. I took it on a 3-week off-road trip through the desert this summer and it did a great job after eating a lot of dust.

    Highly recommend one. URD sells them for a decent price.

    I'm not real sure what the AFE looks like for my Tacoma...any photos anyone?

    I'm considering getting the following AFE filter for my 07 Jeep Rubicon:

    Ummm, it looks exactly like the OEM one except that the filter element color looks like the filter you posted.

    Thanks. The site I ordered from had no photo, and it apparently looks nothing like the Jeep one.
