Pickup trucks have never had them, if you drive a lot of gravel roads the filter would always be plugged.

Finally decided to try this on my 2015. Is the set up behind the glove box different on the 15? It looks as if I have to remove the "shelf" above the glove box to get to the cover.

EDIT
Disregard. Took another look and see where it goes.

Think what all that fine dust does when it hits a moist evaporator. It sticks and collects and clogs it all the way through. The evaporator might not plug up as quickly as a filter but it sure does cost a whole lot more to get it out of there, clean it, and put it back than it does to replace a filter a bunch of times. If I drove a lot on gravel roads, this would be the first mod I would do.

I agree 100% but not all pickup truck drivers are like the people on this web site and like I said the filter would always be plugged for the millions not like us. I've had at least one pickup truck for well over 40 years and my 2011 was the first to be able to have a cabin air filter, don't forget years ago if you wanted "air conditioning" you manually rolled down the window.

Cab fresh filter kit ('10-'17)?

This is definitely on my short list of projects for my new-to-me '12 3500, but I was looking at the Geno's website and saw this:

Cab fresh filter kit ('10-'17)

Anyone know if these are supposed to work together, or is it an either/or type thing? Both kits say they reduce dust and whatnot, but this one seems more specific to odors maybe?

Anyone else have problems with the cover not snapping on all the way? I cut out the template for the filter and test fit the cover, but it just will not *snap* over the little nubs on the sides, and just falls off?? I had to tape it on there to get it to stay put. And yes, I tried it before installing the filter so I know that isn't whats preventing it from snapping home.
