On the newer Rams, the stock intake system is good, but can be better. I definitely saw some improvements right away when I added my aFe CAI. Little better hp. Nice growl up front. And some slight improvement in the mpg, maybe .5mpg better. May get some improvement by just dropping in a better airfilter, but maybe not. Didn't try it so I cannot comment.
Also, I don't pull a trailer, so I cannot help you on that one. Sorry.

Thanks for the thanks, BrownNinja55. It is always nice to be appreciated and give appreciation to the peers/Rams. Let me know how the install goes and how you like it. I am loving mine, especially since I hooked it up with my new performance exhaust system and y-pipe. She no longer purrs. Now she growls and roars.
