K&N, Airaid, AFE, Volant, BFI.... there's plenty to chose from, search through some old threads to read some reviews

Depends on what brand you want to go with. There's the AEM Brute Force which is actually what Mopar uses for their Cold Air. AFE is a pretty good brand as well. Like I said it all depends on what you want to spend and what brand you like. Let me know what you would like to get or if you have any questions!
Thanks, Sam@BMC Performance

You can get pretty much anything any of our vendor offer here and end up with the same result, despite claims by the manufacturer.

I prefer units that are a closed box design that use a cone filter in the box and take air from an opening in the inner fender for cold air outside the engine compartment.

AFE, Volant and others offer such kits.

I just installed an AFE today and it was pretty easy. Theirs actually connects to the factory filter box (which is ducted outside the engine compartment - on my '09 anyway) so there is no fender liner removal or other modifications. Just take the top off, chunk the flat filter and snap down their housing. The air tube alignment wasn't exact but it was workable with the couplings that came with the kit.

I have the S&B intake in my 07 Ram. They claim to make the most horespower out of the box style CAIs. I did notice a difference when I installed it!

I think I am the only member on here with the S&B intake! hahaha. It actually is a very good product and it works great!

I ordered the cheap bully intake off ebay. $104 shipped. havent got it yet though. The most of them do the same thing in my opinion.
