    URD for sure, its what I run on my truck and I love it! You can still go offroading, just not in deep water to submerge the filter, but honestly most people dont do this.

    Put the K&N in and have been happy with it. Gained 1-2mpg and it's loud when you get on it!

    How are you measuring your mpg? Got a gauge? If you do what happened to your IAT with the K&N?
