A giant ziptie around the filter connecting it to a fabricated stand off bracket of some sort.

Or there is also a factory bracket used for the big 6637 Filters lemme see if I can find it.

It looks something like this -- MUFFLER BODY BAND CLAMP, 11.84"(M002123): Superior Diesel


Edit, here's a bit more info for your viewing pleasure http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/95...iy-intake.html

Lots easyer for you to just get a Genuine Tymar intake kit..nothing has been proven to both out flow and out clean one. Cheaper than you think..PM me for pricing.

Not sure if napa has it. Yours might be able to find it.

The folks at my Napa are pretty clueless unless I can provide a vehicle make and model to help them find the part. I only go there after 1st finding the part at napa on line and then I bring them a part number.

Good luck

Mounting Band for 8-1/2" Air Cleaner or Muffler - PowderCoat
That's the one that works right?
I've always tried to find a way to secure it and raise it up a little bit. Thank you for posting this

jesilvas, good call on the part numbers there!

This is probably the route I'll be taking, still have a few things to think about on my homegrown intake mod.
