    Does anyone else have this problem ? Its happened twice now that I have popped the hood and the filter has fallen off the intake.

    I put it on as best as it will go and tighten it up. Seems to just slip off over time. Now I'm paranoid and am constantly checking it. Last resort will be to throw a strand of tape around the thing I guess..

    happened to me while elk hunting last week, found out after about a 2 hour car wash taking off mud. On my previous truck I bolted 1" aluminum strips below and above the filter so it couldn't rattle, that helped. I haven't done that to this truck yet, but I just used a silicone gasket sealer on it. Seems to be good so far. The good thing about the seal is that it comes off when you want to clean the filter.
