Default New Air Filter

Just wanted to share this...

Long story short, I got my truck from my grandpa who bought it in Arizona. He bought it in '01 and brought it back up here to MN and drove it for two years before he was unable to drive. The truck then sat in his garage for the years before this, so it only has 24,000 on the odometer. I got to thinking, when I got it back, I didnt think to check the air filter.

So today I went to AutoZone and got a new K&N filter to hold me over until I get my CAI. When I took the intake apart and took the filter out, I saw this:



Now I feel like an idiot, but my truck runs real nice and my stock exhaust has never sounded better! Hoping to get my CAI and exhaust system soon...

K&N is the only way to go, one has truly got to appreciate the fact they are CLEANABLE and re-usable for up to 1,000,000 miles.
