6.0L Air Filter

I am looking into buying a stock replacement air filter for my 2003 Powerstroke, I'm just not sure which one to buy. My truck is on the silver lake sand dunes about every weekend and I decided that it would probably be best if I upgraded to a new air filter, I don't want a intake because my truck doesn't put out that much power and I don't have the money, but I seen that afe,airaid,and s&b make stock replacement filters. Its cheaper to buy a replacement performance filter than to buy a crappy fram one, so I'd like to know what you guys would recommend for a stock replacement filter? oh yeah my truck also will be plowing snow this winter

if you buy a AFE or S&B or Airraid, they are reusable, all you have to do is clean them, if you want some prices on those, I can get them for you.

The BLUE Donaldson/Motorcraft filter is MORE than sufficient for a stock turbo and will provide you that extra protection for being in the sand. A stock filter can hold about 3 lbs of sand/dirt before it clogs up and you can buy 5 or 6 stock filters for what a CAI costs.
