IMHO, the 6637 is a better filter for our trucks, the K&N Brand was originally designed as a racing filter.

heard k&n lets to much air through and dusting motors letting to much dirt and such through, just average mods and changes the 6637 will be perfect

You can use the K&N tube and it works great! I had one layin around in a buddy's garage that he had taken off of his, it fits perfectly with my 6637! Go for it and never look back

6637 all the way for me. Probably time to change mine after a year or so of abuse.

that was my next question, how long do they last, can i just knock the dust out and keep going for a little more, these filters are he same type that we use at a quarry on heavy equipment and they just blew the dust out with a air compressor and kept going, probably wouldn't do this to my truck. so a year is what people are getting out of the filter?

Depends on where you live and the conditions.

Up here in the rust belt we have road salt dust and all sorts of other nonsense (they're spraying the roads with some sort of liquid now...ain't nothing like the newfie shower you get from passing them). A year might be too long here but that's just how it worked out. Napa usually has sales on those filters so reckon it's time to see whazzup there.
