aftermarket air intake

im thinking about buying an aftermarket air intake to replace my factory one, ive been looking at all the brands but don't know which one would be the best one to buy. the brands ive been looking at are S&B, K&N, and AFE. does anyone got any suggestions to what i should buy?

I have the AFE Stage 2 and love it. In my personal opinion I would not go with the K&N because I dont think it is nearly as good as the S&B or AFE. AFE all the way for me though

AFE on mine.
Everybody, even the guy that sells a lot of K&N, told me stay away from K&N on these trucks.

Make your own. Works better and is waaaay cheaper 4in elbow and a donaldson filter and your good to go. There is a post somewhere that gives a part# for the filter.
