    i have one on mine and im glad i got it. it may just be in my head but it think i felt a little power gain and it has a sweet sound when you get on it. i paid 200 for mine. i say get it.

    I have yet to do this but from what everyone here says a deck plate mod is the way to go. You get the benefit of a CAI with the flexibility of returning it to stock, all for under $15! Can't beat that.

    i had the deckplate mod with K&N drop in filter...

    then my stock box got brittle and cracked from wheeling too much...

    swapped the whole thing out with the FIPK and got better throttle response on the bottom end... top end didn't change too much so no real HP gains, although i do like how much extra room it gave me under the hood to work on the truck and access my suspension...
