    I usually used FRAM from Walmart - but was online and found one from Amazon EAF3085C from Cleenaire for only $9.97.

    Made me realize FRAM must have a huge mark-up. You can tell the $9.97 one is of better quality than FRAM.

    Amazon seems to have some pretty good deals on maintaince parts.

    Air filters are inefficient. No air filter

    AFE and Airaid here, both dry.

    I also agree with Benz88 on Fram. Will never buy anything from that joke of an outfit again.

    AEM dry flow on all my vehicles. It's a one time purchase and normally pays it's self off after the 2nd or 3rd change,

    LOL, I love all the wild answers. Very funny.

    Unless you're out in the desert or under extreme dust conditions, then just about any decent air filter will suffice. I owned two service stations back in 70's and 80's and I've been using Fram air filters (among other brands) for over 40 years and NEVER a problem, not once, ever. I've used them on muscle cars, passenger cars and trucks, never an issue with them.

    And one guy even said "no air filter"...... ROFLMAO..... oh, that's real good for your engine.....:boxed:

    Years ago, I used to use Fram also. Things have changed since 30 or 40 years ago. Fram is not what it once was.
