    Anyone else notice how the intake tubes are different on trucks from a 2017 vs. 2018. I attached a picture of race red truck and an 2017 intake.

    Could be anything from a different supplier for that part to a change made to reduce NVH... or any number of other things. I am not familiar enough with the intake tract of the '17 to know what is in the area of the intake tubing that has changed between '17 and '18.

    It is definitely cost savings... reduction of part count.

    I just checked AutoTrader and all of the ones that have photos of the engine look this way.
