    Alright, so i have a 2009 taco, 4.0L V6, and i want to put an aFe filter in, and i've heard the Pro-Dry S air filter is amazing since its good and, you don't need to oil it. But if i do quite a bit of deep hardcore mudding, and do quite a bit of sand trails, would an oil filter be more logical for me to have?
    thanks

    Do you have a high-flow/cold air intake? IIRC most drop in filters for the stock air box don't need oiling...

    well i just have the stock box, which is basically a CAI anyways, but just wondering if the pro-dry S filter is good enough, or should have a filter that is oil designed
