Question Air Filters???

I am currently running a K&N air filter in my 02', however I have read a bunch on here about how bad these filters are for your truck. What else is everyone else using? I dont care if I need to take the housing off and put a bigger filter on. Just wanted some feedback on what everyone else was using whether it was customized or some kinda kit.

Speaking of filters, I have also heard many bad things about the K&N filters. Because of that, I didnt buy one, but made my own intake kit. I went to NAPA and got a big fleet filter, 9' round, 12' long, and plumed it with a 5' PVC fitting. After I mated it with the stock intake tube, I used a bolt on the left side inner fender well for one support bracket mount, and the other I put in an existing hole in the fire wall. I simply bought a roll of that thin metal "tape" with holes in it (available at most auto parts stores...the brand is "HELP!" ) and I made a cradel lower section between the 2 mounts for the filter to rest in, than streched the remaining "tape" over the top of the filter and cut, creased and bolted that togeather for an easy off, easy on system if I need to blow out my filter. I know this sounds kind of confusing, but if anyone is interested in seeing how it is done (its super easy) I will post pictures if you ask, and I will also go check the part number on the big filter. I got the biggest one that would fit under the looks cool, has plenty of layers, and with the silencer ring out, whistles harder than a 6.0 powerstroke. Anyway, hope this is helpful to someone.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

just go with the BHAF from napa part #2790. It just replaces the stock air box, and keeps the stock tube...simple to install, more turbo sound, and OIL free...
