Air Filter Plugging and Upgrade Recommendation

Most hours spent driving for me are country and field for our job. The air intake sucks up a lot of dirt in the field and plugs quite rapidly. The check air filter light will come on every 3 days if I don't clean it out every 2 days. What type of air intakes will reduce sucking in all that dirt ! I was currently was running a dry AFE filter in the stock intake. It's tricky to fit properly and we still get dirt through. Also just finished putting in reman engine from sucking in dirt, oh s*&t ! This truck needs a different air intake for severe duty driving. Need some good suggestions please

OEM holds the most dirt maybe a reroute of the intake is needed ?

I don't think they have a sever duty OEM AIS like they do for the 7.3's?
