6637 is more widely used among all trucks and has a great bang/buck ratio. They can be bought for $30-$50

Or look at the FORD AIS filter for under $200. It looks right, flows as well (or better) and lasts longer...

Sorry maybe I need to be more specific. A whole kit. The previous owner cut the factory air box and just has a filter on the end of a pipe soni need a full replacement air box and all.

Sounds like everybody with the DIY 6637. It's just the air filter clamped to the pipe. Flows better than any of them I think. Avoid k&n, in my opinion, tons of money for sub par flow and filtration. If you want looks and cleanliness, buy a factory air box and be done with it.

Yeah it's just a polished strait tube with a spectre filter at te end. Just sucking all the hot air under the hood. I'm not worried about looks just functionality.

Then do the 6637. It flows great and the hot air doesn't affect it all that much. I can order the filter on line (wix part#46637) for about $40 shipped. Cheaper if you buy the case. Saves you a ton of money and you won't be dissapointed.
