There isn't going to much of a difference between those 3. I would stick with the K&N, AEM/Mopar one or the Air Raid one. With the AirRaid one, make sure you get the one with the intake tube as well, if not you are not going to see much of a difference over stock.

I would suggest the Mopar(AEM) one to be safe with your warranty. Just my 2 cents.

I have a True Flow CAI on mine but I didn't buy it and I don't know where it came from, it was on the truck when I bought it. I'm thinking of switching to K&N myself although there is nothing wrong with the one I have now.

I just put on a Airaid and like it. Nice sound, and I'm a skeptic about changing gas mileage but I think it may have jumped up a bit. I'm still watching it. If I were to do it again, I would go Mopar and spend a few extra bucks just to protect my warranty.
