Default Dumb question..

How do I go about changing my air filter? I know you have to snap it off, I just don't know how too.

just push the clips towards the housing and pull.. slap a new filter in a then put the housing back together and push down till you hear the clips clip in.. probably the easiest thing anyone can do to their truck.

There will be a separation in the housing. either on the side or top-bottom. look for someting holding them together. You may have screws to undo.
The best thing you can do for fuel mileage is to forego the entire housing, and go in with a high flow cone filter at your MAF sensor.
Not sure what my gains are with the 2.3 yet, but I gained 9 mpg on a Chrysler 5th Ave.
