Hi I have 2005 ram with the air intake system I was wondering whats the diameter of the air filter? I need replacement
Robert G January 16, 2017
Hello Robert. If you already have an upgraded air intake system the you will simply have to measure the air filter you currently have on it. From there you will be able to find a replacement that will fit.
