    Here's an easy one. Replacing air filter on 2004 6cyl prerunner. OEM or aftermarket?

    OEM isn't reusable but does a great job. Aftermarket dry filter is. I like the dry filter not K&N that you oil.

    ^yup. OEM filters better than afe pro dry s. With that said my truck doesn't see to many dirt roads, so I went for the afe filter. Never have to buy another filter, acceleration sound appeared to get a little louder, no noticeable increase in performance though. If you go offroad a lot I would stick with oem.

    years ago I did some research and came to the conclusion that the K&N oiled filter might allow more dust through, so I decided against it. I'm not sure if their technology has changed.

    OEM is good, but I think a high quality aftermarket should be fine also.

    I picked up a couple OEM air filters for my truck as well as my parent's 4runner for $19 each.
