    I had a K&N cone filter, that came with the truck, and swapped it out for stock. I hated the maintenance on the K&N and it does nothing noticeable in performance.

    when I got my truck it had one of those loud air intake systems on it. I searched around and
    found the OEM setup on ebay. When it came it had a nice K&N filter in it. I replaced the
    filter with OEM. I don't remember the details now, but I looked at the replacement paper
    filters at the local auto-zone type places and didn't care for them, that's why I went with
    an OEM paper one. There's probably nothing wrong with K&N, there's a lot of hype
    on the Internet about how good/bad they are.

Replaced stock radio with a Pioneer AVH series head unit. Focal component system w/a 10" sub powered by 2 Alpine amps. Weathertech floor mats. Line-X'd the bed. SCS Ray 10’s, Installed an A.R.E. MX series camper shell. All-Pro Apex front bumper w/ All-Pro skid plates all the way back to the Trans. Low Range fuel skid plate.
    I notice a difference. The cold air intakes are a waste of money. They kinda look cool. I bought one when I first bought my truck and I’m going back to the stock airbox because it’s a true cold air intake but aim going to install a K&N air filter instead of oem.
