Like many of us, I'm getting Ranger parts for Christmas.
I'm trying to keep my wishlist price conscious so as not to cause too much financial pain on my loved ones.
My two main items are:
Cragar Soft 8's and K N drop in airfilter.
Now through my research, I have found that there are even cheaper versions of both.
Both Jegs and Summit racing make a soft 8 steely. Has anyone ordered one of these generic soft 8s? How was the finish and build quality? Any complaints? My main concern is where its made though. Cragars are made in the USA, but I'm not sure about the others... I'm not putting chinese crap on my truck if I can help it.
I also found a cheaper version of the k/n air filter, Its made by a company called Spectre and its reusable as well. Has anyone tried these, they are like half the price of the k&n. I'm not looking for more power or mpg, just a reliable air filter that I can wash and reuse. I don't want the thing falling apart and letting in a bunch of junk through my intake.
TIA and Happy Holidays.
