    I like the idea of the oil free AFE Pro Dry S, thanks. How often do you clean them?

    I clean mine every 5,000 miles when I change the oil and rotate the tires. I just do it all at once since it's easier to remember that way.

    Actually, The OEM air filter flows quite well. Enough so, compared to having no filter (the least restrictive way to test), you would only gain about 1 hp.

    OP, If you want a re useable air filter, the AFE Pro Dry is a good choice. Otherwise, the OEM filter can be had cheaply, and works quite well.

    No, it is not a waste of money, it's quite the opposite, you save money. Buying one reusable filter that lasts the life of your truck is in no way a waste of money.
