When you can't stand to look at something that spends 99.75% of it's time out of sight under the hood, you know you truly can't leave shit alone. lol

You can try to sell it, but I'm not sure anyone's going to buy it Jay.

Post some before and after pics when you've got it installed.

Picked up the Airaid Jr kit after work last night, and put it on after dinner. Overall, really nice piece, looks factory in it's own way, which i like. Nice durable hard plastic, has a nice tight fit to the factory air box, but did have a little clearance issue where the inlet tube sits behind the driverside head light opening on the rad support. The airaid came in contact with part of the sheet metal, so all i did is shaved/trimmed a bit of the one corner on the tube, and all is good. The replacement filter is a nice piece, looks almost like a K&N in all reality LOL!
As for the verdict on how it feels. Definitely feel a better throttle responce, truck is very responsive, and snappy at the hit of the throttle, but i guess it would considering how small the hole was on the factory inlet tube for sucking in air compared to the Airaids inlet. It would be like trying to fit an elephant into the opening in a dog house!!!LOL! Enough with the chat......
Here are some pics.

One more thing, as for engine noise level with the swap to the Airaid compared to the stocker with the noise reducers/tanks, or what ever they are called, no diffrence at all!

Looks good, I personally would have removed the Airaid emblem and left the screws painted black, but I like the way you muted it by adding a darker decal on top.
