Best replacement air filter?
 
I am looking for the best replacement air filter for my 13 LML. I thought about a cold air intake, but it's dusty around here and we end up off road a lot, so a K&N or other gauze filter seems like a bad choice.

Stock.

Definitely a bad choice. The stock filters are really hard to beat.

every test I've seen shows the stock filter is much more efficient at trapping dirt, trapping smaller sized particles and longer lasting than anything else. All you give up is a very slight increase in pressure drop.

So..... I just go with stock.

In fact, this is the best price I've found on filters online:

Air: FleetFilter Secure Store - Wix, Fram, Baldwin, Luberfiner

Hands down a STOCK filter. :thumb:

If you want another opinion, OE.

Stock is the best....

I forget the name of the best one, but it rhymes with "shock" ;-)

I read a test done by an independent lab that the best filter was the OEM.
I will try to find it and post it here.
K&N definitely not a good idea.
