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???
How extreme is your off-road endeavors? Mud? Lakes? Rivers? Submerged? Sand?

Have you checked to see if S&B Filters offers a drop-down scoop for your truck's model?
