Stock or aftermarket filter??????????????

I have an 03 6.0l. I have heard that the stock filter flows tons of air. Right now I have an AFE stage II dry filter. It's coming off because I drive bush roads everday now and I heard many people have dusted engines because of aftermarket filters. The reason why I wanted to go with an aftermarket filter is so I can clean it every couple of weeks.
S&B claims there filters filter better than the OEM. I have a hard time believing that but I just wanted peoples opinions.

The stock air filter will hold approx. 3lbs of crap before it plugs, is MORE than adequate for a stock turbo and since it's manufactured by Donaldson I seriously doubt that there's any way S&B can filter any better than that.

I hear you but I know that a stock air filter still passes some dirt in really dusty conditions like I drive.
I just wanted to go with the aftermarket filter so i could clean my filter ever couple of weeks. I don't like the idea of checking my air filter and putting it back on with three pounds of dust in it.

There have been more cases of dusted turbos from aftermarket filters then there have been from the stock ones. You take that chance. Nothing may happen, but then something might.

My filter minder went 65K before it even MOVED! I changed it about 70K and it still had some left

That stock filter holds a LOT of stuff!

When you turn your truck on.. Does it return the favor?

Mine does.

The stock filter was DESIGNED for some really really nasty conditions and there's NO WAY that an aftermarket "single layer design" could hold as much nor will this filter allow dusting. The Donaldson blue media filter is the best you can get for a 6.0 PERIOD.
