Default Cold Air Intakes...I wanna know...

I was wondering what kind of cold air intakes you guys are running cause I'm in the market for one. Any issues with them? Any good things?

I am trying to figure out whats the best for the 4.0 sohc. Cause I've seen where a K&N will do worse than Volant and vice versa. But as we all know our trucks arent very popular with the aftermarket.

Any issues with the K&N or AEM? And I was planning on a Diablosport tuner.

No one with a 4x4 should ever, EVER install a CAI. Hydrolock ftl.

If you're talking short ram, then i'd go for the cheapest one between them, since they all seem (but don't take my word for it, it's just an opinion!) to use the same designs on metal tubing anyways. You can always change the filter to another company later on.
