Default which cai?

Ok guys sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this since i have an older truck but havent found a thread with the 2nd gen trucks this much in depth about a cai so thought id ask you guys since you have prolly owned older dodges as well. so here i go.. i have a 99 dodge ram 5.9L 360 and was wondering best cai setup? i also have a 3'' body lift so am wondering if this would throw them off by much since they are drop ins, ive heard the tubes can be too short cause of the lift so any suggestions would be great. i hear the volant tube is flexable enough for a body lift but not positive on this. il include pics of all three setups im lookin at.. please help me in my decision

First is based just on cost factor and like the metal tube with red filter:
Spectre at $125 shipped

Then to the inclosed cai's cause they are better but also more $$$
S&b makes one for my truck for $210 vs Volants with air scoop for $250-$300
i take my truck off road every once and a while so would enclosed be better?
i like the looks of the s&b better than volant but like that volant has the air scoop... would it be wise to buy the s&b and drill a whole in bottom and make my own scoop? id prolly also paint the tube so its not the boring black...
Any thoughts???
