The 31s are going to look small once you get the body lift on... I have a pic somewhere of my truck on 31s just after I put my Superlift on which would be pretty close in height. I'll see if I can find it!

I've got a K&N. No real noticeable difference other than the sound... that's my opinion anyways!

I didn't notice any difference, and if there was one it was very minimal!

I've never used one, but there was a thread about them recently and most say no.

just remove your silencer crap and you have an instant cold air intake, it is the same exact identical thing as those 300$ K&N stuff. dont need a spacer just ziptie your throttle cable. does the same thing just from another end of the throttle cord

both sound so cheap but do the same exacxt thing without the 400$ spent

The only way a TB spacer or intake works good is with a custom tune.

I was cleaning my TB and intake this past weekend and I thought I would just leave the TB spacer out b/c of the negative feedback they get. Well after I took it out and drove it for the day, I put it right back in as soon as I got home. My truck ran like s**t.

So if you don't plan on getting some customs tunes from an Xcal 3, then yes don't bother paying for an intake and TB spacer like C.B. said.
