You would think so , but nope....no filter. It doesn't make sense. Do a search on here for the radiator hose funky smell thread like someone said. Also, you can buy or rent an ozone machine and leave it running in your truck a full day. Companies that deal with restoration after water or fire damage should have these and it may help. Also put a charcoal odor absorbing bag or two under your seats. You can order from Amazon.

Ok well I'm hoping it's for the 2013's as well. I'm in Canada, so shipping always costs me a ton and takes forever...so I'm currently on hold with the dealer to see if they have the kit in stock from Mopar. I'll pay a little extra for it if I can get it installed this weekend. I am DEFINITELY tired of all the dust in the truck, as well as the smell. I'll see if this helps.

It's definitely good that this is a well documented, and easy mod because I'm NOT a mechanic and am generally pretty bad at these things. I can't even install my own CAI...which sucks. I hate paying people to install simple things.

It should be easy to install and even tiny mods like this will give you a good feeling of accomplishment when you do it. It's funny how that works. The filter door is one that is already on several mopar cars so you shouldn't worry about it causing any trouble either.

If you was near me I would do them for you, you pay the beer, but just some insight, if your going to do the cutting, don't use one of them Xacto knifes, they break to easy and you can end up with some bad cuts, use a good knife and run it along the lines you will see on the air box, just follow those lines, pass over them 3 - 4 times and it will cut the plastic and you can pull it out, also when you put the cap on it, check that it clips right, they have a tendency to need to be pushed on from the side when new so they clip well, I had no issues with the passenger side clip of the cap, but the driver side clip I had to slip my finger on the side to clip it properly.

If you think it's a dead animal smell, crawl underneath the truck and check it carefully. Your nose will lead you. lol
Sometimes a critter will get up into the wheelwell and get close to the engine in really cold weather. When you start motor you may have had a critter get caught and killed.

It's worth checking out...good luck

Sounds good. I've read a few threads on this, and it looks easy enough. I have a set of sharp knives so i'll just use one of them. Shouldn't be a problem.

My only concern is the fitment of the filter in the newly-cut hole. I've read that that filter does not fit all the way in, and that it sticks out 3/4". So...when you try to put on the cover...you just compress the filter and shove it inside? Or does the cover somehow magically go around the exposed 3/4" of filter?

I was actually just under the truck to change the oil, only a few days ago. No weird smells there. It's definitely only on the inside of the truck. Don't notice anything wrong on the outside.

I'm really worried it's just the glue and the plastic being 'new' and smelling bad. I even have 20% tint on the front windows (matches the rear) to reduce the sun's effects in the cab. I don't want discoloration over time, or anything else like that. I'm debating adding a layer of aftermarket tint to the already stock-tinted rear windows to really black it out and block out even more sunlight.

It sticks out about 1/2, that part fits inside the cap area, you will understand when you see the filter and the cap, no compression.

There are several posts on this forum about a problem with the radiator hoses causing a really bad smell In the Ram trucks. Do a search. If I remember correctly the hoses are being replaced under warranty for the stinking condition. I could be wrong about that?
