Air filters are an important part of your trucks operating systems. Air filters work by trapping the dirt and other particles in material that is layered like an accordion. This allows clean air to flow through and keep the dirt behind, allowing your engine to get the air it needs in a clean manner. Changing air filters when they are dirty, which is at least once a year with normal use, is important to pro-long the life of your engine and help with the gas mileage of your truck.
There are many different air filters out there to choose from. Aftermarket air filters can create more air volume and a larger, unrestricted air flow into your system. When done properly this can increase your power and fuel economy, which is why aftermarket air filters are a popular addition to pick-up trucks.
