No trouble caused at all.

I'm calling my contact at S&B Intakes tomorrow to find out it's authenticity and, if so, an ETA on its release.

I'll post an update tomorrow.
For those interested -

I spoke with S&B Filters' head tech this afternoon [awesome guy!]. The forum member who claimed to be working with their technical department is kind of right; though it's not a direct correlation between the two parties

The product he's working with is a Scoop S&B Filters sent him for his 3rd Gen Ram 1500 and NOT the 4th Gen Ram 1500, like I thought. This member was sent a Scoop in the hope of modifying it to fit his truck by removal of the lower valance among others. He was after THIS type of Ram Air Scoop finish as opposed to just the drop type we currently have available. His success will obviously depend on many factors as to whether it sees the light-o-day.


Tech also told me that they DO have plans for a Ram Air type of Scoop for the 4th Gen Ram 1500's but nothing was definitive as yet. The issue? Our 4th Gen Ram 1500's are a little too nose-deep in the front end [OEM] and S&B Filters are afraid of bottoming-out.

They are hoping for a 2013 release as intrest has been apparent but, again, nothing is cemented.

Hope this helped.

Truck looks great and is exactly what mine would look like.

I am torn on the chrome wheels though as I like the silver or machined look with my truck.

For those who asked questions and wanted specific pictures -

I measured the back tires' inner sidewall bulge to the wheel-well plastic liner in the BACK this morning and there is app. 2 INCHES of clearance on both sides; maybe a just tad less.

I measured the front tires' inner sidewall bulge to the outer lip of the UCL this morning and couldn't get a tape measure in there for an accurate read. There's no a lot of room at all, truth be told. If I was to throw out a number, based on feel/appearance, I'd say app. 5MM of clearance [at best] on both sides between the tire and the arm's outer lip. Yes, not much room for error but no issues thus far.

On my previous truck, with the same tires/wheels combo but with a Hell Bent 2.5" level kit [block spacer], I had about 2 MM [at best] clearance up front and it NEVER rubbed.

Pictures are below.

Any other numbers/pictures you want, just ask.
