Ditching my K & N

I have a K & N air filter, air box and tube. I have heard all the cons against K & N and have decided that I want to switch filters. My question is can I just switch to a different brand of filter and keep the air box and tube? What is a good filter to run and will a similar filter fit in my air box I currently have?

Put that K&N in the can next time the garbage man drives by.

The DRW has the Ford AIS set up and it seems like a good system. A lot of people who have them agree it's top notch and best thing is it's from Ford so for any warranty issues (most are long past with the 7.3) they have to say it's ok.
