I just spoke with 4WheelParts about getting the factory air filter replaced with the K&N unit.

He called K&N about it and was told there was a minor difference between the '07 and '08, so K&N didn't have an application for my new truck.

Can anyone here confirm a difference between them?
Anybody already get a part for their '08? what is it? the part #?
I really only want to change the filter, not put on a whole new intake set-up.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Our 2008's have a flat panel filter. Not the cylinder type as previous years have.
Excellent. I think I like that better...
I'll take the filter out and measure it, as mentioned, and go from there.

Now, I have another question.
Is it preferable to run a dry filter as opposed to the K&N's oiled version?
I am a rookie with the 21st Century, even late 20th Century technology. What I am wondering about is contaminating electrical stuff with oily gunk!
Is that a concern?

You be my guides!
Thanks.
