I run the aFe w/ the Pro5R filter, but that's only because my truck NEVER goes offroad. There's no dust or dirty coniditions where I live, so I wanted the most free flowing filter they had.
If you want protection, the ProGuard filters are better. Several members in my group have the S&B intake systems and love them. Literally, the only reason I bought the aFe - was because I thought it looked cooler. I think the two perform virtually identical.
You can't go wrong, either way - you'll be happy!
