I hate to keep telling you this about....everything you want, but if you wait a few more weeks.... i am hoping to have a quality intake kit for a very reasonable price available.

I go to the office on thursday and will be in contact with the guy that makes the intakes. I will be able to put pretty much any filter i want on it, i'm thinking "green filters" or the aem dry filter on the custom tube.

I had an AirAid on my truck. Seemed to help a little. Had a cat-back too. Made the exhaust sound a little better, especially at WOT, which made it worth it for me.

I'd like to get the Airaid for my truck. If it is anything like the one I have in my Dodge it should seal against the hood and use the factory lower part of the airbox.

I don't see a tube listed for the rangers though, just the filter end. I wonder why?

I had to buy the tube separately for my Dodge. Maybe the rangers tube isn't a restriction like the Dodges was?
