Have you looked into S&B filters at all? They have a great quality kit and most other companies use the S&B filters... if thats tells you anything about their product. I have not had one complaint from customers about the S&B's and everyone I have talked to who has them, LOVEs them.
Nothing wrong with the OEM filter at all. Save your dough. You're a soldier and unfortunantly Uncle Sam doesn't pay you what you're worth.
"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialist concludes that we object to its being done at all. " -The Law, Frédéric Bastiat, 1850
Chris, if you plan on keeping your truck for a long time and you want a cold air intake, i got the S-B setup. I plucked down the the money 286.00 to be exact but my filter is for life. Just wash it and re oil it and let dry completely and put back in. Despite the investment up front, its better for me because i'll never have to buy a 30.00 OEM air filter again. It,s all personal choice.

One thing to keep in mind: The 1st time you have to tell your wife/girlfriend/significant other "Sorry, but you can't use the truck until the filter is dry and I oil it", it may not seem like a good choice.
