First off, beautiful truck. Congrats on the new ride!

Second, yeah I agree with Roger. That intake looks cool but I can guarantee you that it is hurting your performance. It may not hurt it enough for you to notice from behind the wheel but it is hurting it. The stock Ram airbox and intake assembly is actually pretty efficient as far as stock systems go. Not to mention, if that intake is a cheapo no-name, there's no telling what kind of filters those are or how much filtering they are actually doing. I would either put it back to stock or spend the money to get a reputable name brand CAI like an S&B or something similar. It's gonna run you $200-300. If you don't want to spend that much, I would simply put it back to stock.
