Default Craigslist CAI Score

Scouring craiglist like I do from day to day I came across a Mopar CAI for 03-05 dodge rams. Guy said make em an offer, I called em and he didnt answer so after a few hours he called me back. He sounded a little drunk lol and was like yeahhhhh come get it Ill sell it for 75.00. So I drove out to em, it was like an hour away and sure enough there it was a brand new kit. The only thing was, the dealer he worked at bought this kit to replace someones broken tube (the mounting bracket snapped off). Everything was brand new in the box except here was the old tube, really not a big deal I can always rig something up or weld a new one right? So I got this Mopar CAI for 75.00 basically brand new. Then the guy points over to the side of his house and asks if I could use a bedliner. There it was an all black dodge bedliner for a shortbed!!! He gave it to me for free!! So i dropped it in, it fit perfect, took my intake and left. Great day!! After getting home I realize the broken piece from the intake tube is still in the box! So Ima take it to the shop at work tomorrow and weld it back on and spray silver over it and good as new. This will def be an upgrade since my truck has one of them sorry ebay intakes. Cant wait to install. Pics to follow.
