Default should I get new airflow box?

I am looking for any recommendations as to whether it is worth the $$$ to replace the original air flow box and air filter on the 2009 Ram 4.7L engine. I know K&N and some others offer the boxes. Any advantages to getting one? Thanks for your help.

I know for the 4th gen Hemis there is no real benefit, but I'm not sure how different the air box and intake are on the 4.7 equipped trucks.

You don't need a new box but I would def get an after market filter. I run a K&N wet filter and stock air box for my 5.7 but to each his own. I know it does what it's suppose to do and that's god enough for me.
