Well, after 93,000 trouble-free miles, I finally had to work on the wife's Durango. Replaced the thermostat and radiator cap. Glad ot have solved that overheating problem at last.

But here's where the fun begins.

Had the hood up, and happened to look over at the workbench in the garage and saw one of my old K&N filter we use on the CTD's. THen my eyes happened across the intake hose that attached to the stock airbox on the Durango.

Then the wheels started turnin.

I grabbed the K&N cone filter, cut me a little piece of 3" Sewer and Drain pipe, a bigger hose clamp and a screwdriver and went to work.

The filter is a K&N RE-0880 that can be had a Summit Racing for around $45. Summit part # is KNN-RE0880
The S&D pipe was just laying around the house and the hacksaw covered the cutting(FREEBIE!!! FREEBIE!!! FREEBIE!!!)
Had to go to the hardware store for the clamp.

The piece of pipe fits snug on the inside of the intake hose, it gives the clamp somthing substantial to hold on to to keep the filter from slipping off. It WILL NOT come off unless you remove the hose clamp.
I haven't decided whether to leave it on top of stick it under the CC acutaor(at least I think that' what it is). The filter looks like hell, that what a twin turboed Cummins pushing 80 of boost will do to it.

Either way, here's the finished product.
