Did the install this even. Took some pictures as visual aids to anyone who hasn't done this before. This is a 15 minute job if you have a Phillips and straight screwdriver ready to go.
First thing is raising your bed. Is there really only that much room under there?
You need to remove the outer cover. The rubber mounts can be a little tough to pull out, especially when it's cold. I used the handle in the middle while slipping my other hand under the edge to pry up.
Inner cover is next. 6 metal retainers hold it down. They can pop off with some force, so watch your fingers, cause they sting when they hit your frozen knuckles.
Here we are at the stock filter. It's a medium sized Phillips head on the clamp. Loosen the clamp until you can slip the filter off.
You can inspect your intake to make sure it hasn't been sucking poo poo past the filter.
Remove your new filter from the box. Inside you will find a new hose clamp. Don't just toss this away thinking you will use the stock one. They are different sizes.
Now you want to oil the filter. I hold it while spraying. I use a top to bottom spray motion and count "thousand 1" as I make a spray down the side. I then rotate the filter in my hand and repeat until it is oiled all the way around. I then repeat that process so that it has two even coats this will apply about 3/4 of and ounce of the oil.
If your not using the pre filter, you will slip the filter into place and tighten the new clamp.
I am installing the pre filter.
Slip it down over the filter. Try to make sure it is sitting evenly in place all the way around.
Now take the covered filter and slip it into place.
Reinstall the inner cover.
Apply the K&N filter sticker, so if anyone else services the vehicle they know not to toss it.
Replace the outer cover. Pick up your tools and lower your bed.
Turn the key and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
