    TYC. Because the only difference between the OEM and the TYC is... drum roll... $12.

    So you bought the oem eh?

    Pretty simple. I had the oem, then I bought the tyc. Compared the two and they are nearly identical. Then I said to myself hmmm, I can buy three tyc's or one overpriced oem. THis shit aint rocket science.

    Bought the Fram filter at Amazon for $11.86. Seems to work just fine.

    I bought the fram filters before. Seem to work well. My dealer wanted $80 for filter plus install, diy is the way to go here.

    Went ahead with the K&N electrostatic. It'll be in the free after however long 2 oems would last. I'll be keeping my truck much longer than that. Has a nice electrostatic/hepa smell for months that the recharge kit gives back. I switched from the home depot altered electrostatic home filter. None of the filters suck as much as how much a dealership wants to rip people off for to install one......DON'T LET THEM!!!!!!!!

    My thing is not having to go fetch one when it needs attention. Go pop it out, wash it out and go more. Same reason for the aFe Pro Dry S non-oiled engine air filter. Any time I can reduce the go-fetch-free-time-wasting-errand things, which always involve stupid traffic in the metro mess I live near, is a win.

    Wow, OEM filter is already overpriced at $20 AND, they ask $60 to open the gloves box!

    No I didn't buy a replacement yet, that's why I'm asking. You mentionned that they are nearly identical. What's the differences?

    Honestly, I just think cost man. They seemed almost identical to me.
