    Anything good/bad as far as an air filter out there? I am NOT leaning towards a K&N as I operate the truck in a pretty dusty area. Thanks!

    Stick with the OEM filters. No gains to be had other than noise from aftermarket.
    Not sure about difference between the 2 filters. But someone here will

    Is it possible that one of those part numbers is for the CABIN air filter?

    Or maybe for different engine sizes? 4.7, 5.7, maybe even V6 4.0?

    I would use an OEM replacement filter or a Wix filter. I bought a Wix filter for my last F-150 and it was made far superior to the OEM version, the paper pleats were much bigger for more filtering area. So when the time comes to replace the one in my truck I will compare it visually to a Wix and go from there.

    17801-0P100 should be the one you need.

    AFE dry drop in has been independently proven to provide a few ponies.

    I run an AFE Pro Dry S in mine. I can't say that I've seen any noticeable gains from it but I havent seen any negative affects either. Not having to buy another air filter will save me some money in the long run.

    After reading all the comments I can’t tell if it’s just a waste of money or it helps even a tad bit?

    I the first 3 days of ownership put a K&N insert got rid of that paper shit filter, but in the near future I will be putting in TRD remote air intake that is designed to fit right inside your engine bay and connect extremely easy. Provides nice little growl under full acceleration but it is very tame when driving normal. For an additional note I am adding TRD dual exhaust also designed to fit perfectly both can easily be done in the driveway in a couple hours

    I wouldn't consider it a waste of money. Better filtration isn't really measurable but is better for your motor over time. Slightly better air flow might equate to a negligable mileage gain, but a gain none the less. In the end, if you change your filter twice a year at $25 a pop you'll have invested about that much in a K&N or AFE but you'll save that $50 every year after that.
