I just cleaned all the parts, washed the filter so I'm waiting for it to dry before I re-oil. I might hasted the drying process with my shop vac. It's 95 degrees out there so I'm in no hurry.

I usually check CL daily, I found it by searching 'Hemi Ram' under the for sale section, not just the autoparts section. I bought a Lund Tri-fold for $200 last fall from a guy that had to buy a truck box for his construction business.

The guy I bought this filter off has an '06 White Megacab that he is returning to stock. He is trying to sell it but no takers just yet.

Got it installed. Took about an hour and 3 Coors light but I was taking my time. Fits good but I think I might have overtightened the hose clamp on the intake manifold, I will recheck in a few miles. Pics:

Secure filter, I'll be purchasing a new one, I was able to get it clean but it doesn't look good enough for me. :

Buttoned up, ready for a spin around the block:

Quiet under normal driving. Throaty when at full throttle. Got 2nd gear to chirp which I found fairly inpressive.
