The favorite intake around here is the DIY NAPA 6637, or the already made version called a Tymar.

- Glad to have you!

Plenty of good air filters out there to choose from.

Before just blowing off K&N, give this a read:
K&N CAI known to contribute to dusting? - Not saying it's the best filter out there, not saying it's the only I'll ever use, but I think being informed is always good. Ultimately, the decision is yours.

did you pick that truck up in KC? sounds like one i was browsing. i agree, 6637 or AFE. as for the tranny, you can upgrade the VB, Torque Converter, and Cooler. thats helps a good deal. or you can wait until it goes and get a BTS or JW tranny. but the three mention will go well for extending life. assumings its already in good condition.
