    You've already got one from the factory... You would just be buying a 400 dollar whistle.

    I put the Rough Country intake on my 2021 and I think it sounds great. Maybe a touch more torque it feels like but as mentioned above could be placebo. Overall very happy with the intake though.

    The only one worth getting is the Stillen, imo. The S&B one is nice but you’re supposed to plug the additional intake port in hot weather, whereas the Stillen can keep the additional intake open at all times.

    As far as I know, everyone here who has one loves it.

    TRD or Stillen should be the only options. Even then I'd rather use those funds for an exhaust of which you will actually feel a power increase with.

    I’ve done extensive testing of intakes. I recommend saving the money and putting it towards exhaust. Gears. Etc.

    Just do a stock air box mod and throttle body coolant bypass mod. The throttle body coolant bypass should be done regardless of intake status.

    I live in Nebraska and winters can get real cold, do you still recommend TB bypass?

    I would spen $400.00 on pine tree air fresheners before I added one of those again. Check ebay and look how many other didn't like them.

    This is so annoying... A tube is a tube. Its only a true COLD air intake if it has a place to put ice

    If below freezing and going to put the truck under load, you’ll want to reconnect the coolant first.
