Differences in the afe stage II

Well I recently bought a new truck a couple weeks ago and absolutely love it, I haven't been too concerned with HP stuff cause it came with a bunch of items done already. I have mostly been worried about winterizing it as it needs tires and a few other things along with other glitches.

Anyways, I almost done with that other stuff and i've been looking at a new air intake because the plain k&n filter is boring, worrying me and not impressive to me. I wanna buy a AFE stage II cold air because they seem to be the best NON-DIY and I don't really wanna do a DIY. But I am looking at the AFE stage II and there are like 3 different and I can't tell the damn difference because of price and what comes with it. On Raul's site there are 3 ones that look they same but with different prices. So could someone please explain the differences?

AFE stage 2
AFE stage 2 w/pro-guard 7
AFE Pro Dry S Stage 2 Type XP Intake System

BTW my truck is a 2000 F-350 XLT Ext. Cab SB

love my stage II as well...the air box is the same for all 3 you posted..it just depends on what filter you want..i ran the pro 7 for quite a while because the salt dust up here during the winters are unreal....i ran a pro dry last summer because there easer to clean but i think ill go back to my pro7 and stick with it...

So basically it just depends on filter based on your situation? They all have the same HP and TQ ratings though?

Where do you live?

yes the boxes are all the same..its matter of filter choice....for some reason i thought the pro dry flowed more air then the other 2.. but the way i read that is the stage 2 flows 70% more air over stock..the pro guard 7 has the same benefits as the stage 2 but filters better..both are oiled filters..the pro dry flows 50% more air but is oil less for easy cleaning..

i live in the white mountians of NH..little town called Whitefield..I'm on the north side of Mt washington..

AFE is great I have tried every other air filter out there and the AFE gave the best benefits even on a bone stock truck.

Wow thanks, I appreciate all the help. That pretty much cleared it up.

you cant go wrong with buying from Stealth thats for sure..dont forget the cleaning kit if you go with an oiled filter....

i had the DIY filter for about 2 weeks..did not like the drone from it..drove me crazy...the Stage 2 air box has nothing but a good whistle while cruising....

it is worth the money to upgrade from a DIY? I aint buildin a monster hp thing but DIY was cheap so I did it.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...
