If you care about your motor not blowing up from a broken OEM pickup, and ESPECIALLY if you have money invested in a built motor, get this pickup!! It's got .31 clearance on the OEM pan (the sweet spot), with height tolerances much better than the OEM pickups, and will NEVER break!

and I think the guy who makes them is having a group buy right now

If memory serves me correctly, I once tried and 04-05 pickup with an 06+ pan and it didn't work. I seem to remember the kick-in feature (where all the aftermarket headers crowd the pan) was just different enough to interfere. The pan depth of the 04-05 and 06+ is only a tiny bit. The 06+ is about .06" deeper. With the tolerances of the pans and pickups you might as well run an 04-05 pan and pickup.

And in case anyone cares the 06+ pickup is a hair over 5/8" from the bottom of the pan.
