I went looking for a K&N, but couldn't find it for my 98 Durango. This aFe did come up and it looked similar. As far as I can tell the quality is very good. I have never intalled something in my car that was easier and took less time - a complete breeze. I like how the air filter was protected away from the hot engine with very nice quality weatherstripping. The extra sound is clear when you are revving it from under the hood and just barely noticeable back in the cabin. I personally couldn't feel any substantial power increase, but overall the engine does appear to be breathing well and response may be a little better. The verdict is not in on the gas mileage, but it appears I might be getting an extra mpg (before 11.5 mpg and after 12.5 mpg with a mix of city and hwy). I'm impressed with autoanything - they are definitely a new bookmark for me.
A couple more comments - the round connector to my engine was quite a bit smaller than my original, but because it was smooth inside and my old one was not, I used the new one thinking air flow might be better still. Also, they give you a cheap wing-nut to clamp it down so I just used my original nut-cap which looks better (see pic).
