Actually I'm still using the oem filter. Hopefully soon I'll get an air intake.

How about a dung beetle and rolled dung filter? Plenty of that out there!

I first experienced the phenom south of the City while out for a stroll one day in a February spring. Came upon a Bedouin with sheep and was invited into his tent for tea.

I found the time to install the lights yesterday night.
Some before and after pics..







i have to say, these are very bright, maybe the pics do not justify it.
i had 2 issues, the 1st, i got the supreme package which includes the vanity lights, which i dont have in my truck, so these lights are just hanging there. the 2nd is the 3rd brake light, which i find not that bright with the red lense. it was pinkish.
other than that, [MENTION=27078]Jon_To[/MENTION] was great at dealing with, and fast shipping.

Just purchased the front Bilsteins 5100s this evening from a local shop to level the front with the rear and prevent rubbing when installing the fenders, fortunately they were available. Will proceed installation within next week.
