You don't need a different hose. Maybe a few inches of sewer pipe to stiffen the clamp area. I tried some nifty tubes & such but they didn't work out. What you'll need is something to cover the stock mounting studs through the fender or a platform to sit it on, some require chafe protection against the AC line. http://articles.mopar1973man.com/2nd-generation-24v-dodge-cummins/24-air-system/41-bhaf-big-honkin-air-filter

So, bungie cords would be a little redneckish, huh?

Not at all. I have a BHAF but I installed an aluminum heat shield to protect it from the turbo heat. Then I installed an Outerwears prefilter on the BHAF and bungee'd it down to the A/C line. Eric over at Vulcan Performance has both: http://www.vulcanperformance.com/Big-Honkin-Air-Filter-BHAF-p/bhaf.htm The Outerwears prefilter makes the BHAF last a LOT longer and looks good to boot. :thumbup2:

You could keep the intake hose but the heat sheilds / boxes that AFE offers are all much too small for the BHAF. I think if you just took at the pictures in the thread I linked earlier, you'll easily see the differences. There are plenty of dry medium filters which would fit in your truck but the beauty of the BHAF is it's massive size.

I have found another website to get the BHAF cheaper than vulcanperformance.com. I searched the cross reference part numbers for the BHAF and found everythingtruckparts.com has it listed under the WIX 42790 part number for $40.81. :thumb1: Shipping was also close to half the price that Vulcan said it would cost to ship to my house.

Great find! You are right. Vulcan has really raised the price on their filter. I was playing around with some other part#'s and found the Donaldson B105006 for $37.69. http://www.everythingtruckparts.com/donaldson-b105006-air-filter/ Here is the Wix 42790: http://www.everythingtruckparts.com/wix-42790-air-filter/ Thanks for the tip! :thumbup2:

There is a cross over list & several similar sizes will work fine. I searched ebay with all the different brands & numbers.

Thanks man, you saved me $12. Once I saw this post I imediately got on and ordered one. I have an S&B that is leaking that cleaning fluid into my turbo and intake. I've heard BHAF are the best and they last a long time. Thanks for the tip. Really helped out.

Not a problem bud. Always glad to help out with saving money.:broke: Just wish I could found a turbo for less lol.

To all: I'm gonna check on the John Deere part number and see what my cost is on it. If I can get them cheap enough I will pass the savings onto others. Give me a couple days to find out on it and I will post about it.

Just so you know, I doubt John Deere will be any cheaper. They are the most expensive parts out there. I might be wrong but I think it's a pretty slim chance.

Well I'm an employee so I get a pretty good discount plus I get an extra 15% off filters in February. Picked up four oil filters for the truck for like 35 dollars:thumbup2:

Haha! Wow! I spoke too soon. How much was the shelf price?

Idk yet. Looked at it online and it showed 76.25 but where I go to look up parts Idk if it shows our cost or list price. It usually shows list but I hardly look up parts that way so I'm not for sure. I will call tomorrow and see. I just looked at receipt from oil filters and picked them up for $7.69 a piece plus tax.

Might want to ask your local Napa, when OR if they have filter sale coming up, if your wanting the BHAF Napa/Wix 2790. My local Napa has 3-4 filter sales a year. I was in there the end of last year, getting some other part. The counter guy asked if I needed any filters (FILTER SALE) sure I asked how much for a Napa/Wix 2790, he said sale is $29.00 each, at that price I grabbed two. Got a new 1 on the truck and 1 sitting on the shelf waiting.

I checked the price today on John Deere filter with my discount and it will still be $56 with tax. They are cheaper online even with having to pay the shipping. But I can get cheap oil filters if anyone need some lol. Haven't checked on fuel filters yet but will look into it.

how many km's do you typically get out of one of these BHAF??

- - - Updated - - -

My truck came with the magnum force AFE and it is not cutting it! my turbo has a little **** building up not nearly as bad as that pic on here tho! thinking about changing over to this BHAF or looking at the upgrade to the Pro Guard 7 from AFE so I don't have to change the intake tube and do any modifying! its supposed to be there off road filter with good dust control! anyone have any experience with it?

I got 135,000 miles (217,000 km's) out of my first BHAF. There wasn't any restriction shown by the filter finder but the filter media inside was starting to darken so not wanting to risk the engine I replaced at that point.
