Did the anytime fog light mod today, as well as wired in the new (to me) LED lights on the bumper. Worked out pretty well and didn't take long at all!

Thinking about mounting my rack somehow without using quickfists. I am starting to think it might not be safe.

I agree that the Quickfists might be sketchy at highway speeds especially if you had a ligh load up there that displaced a lot of air and added to the sail effect

Or deal with hot/cold weather that could weaken the straps. I can't count the number of plastic or rubber bits the alternating hot/cold in NY has broken. Also, are the UV resistant?

• First 50,000 miles of engine life: one quart per 2,000 miles
• Engines with over 50,000 miles: one quart per 750 miles
• Aggressive driving conditions: one quart per 500 miles
Those numbers are easy to meet though.

Normal oil consumption for Chrysler products is 1 quart every 4000 on new vehicles and 2000 on older vehicles.



You can recover this oil from your driveway

60/60 assuming the new car warranty, but your "Certified Used" refreshed that to the 84/100... you should be covered, and I would elevate it to corporate if they balk.

That's going to one of my arguments. And is why I'm going with the wife when she takes the car in.

Good luck.
I hope they take care of you, but it may require a trip to the corporate ladder a bit.

Thanks. I'm prepared for that. I printed the TSB out fully expecting them to not even know about it.

Even if it is, what happens if one of the forward straps breaks while going down the highway? Will the other one hold it down and keep the rack from lifting up and flipping off the back of the truck?

Yeah they say that on the package. I have had some back there in the bed or a while as well. No issues with them.

Quick Fist states there safe working load at 25 pounds a piece and there are 10 up there. They also state that three will hold a hi lift jack.

I took a 300 mile trip with it the other day with stuff up there and the hi lift mounted to it. My fear is a wreck that is forceful enough to make it fly off.

Just ordered some ProComp 16" 7032's. Can't wait to get them in. Now, anyone know what style lug nuts they take? I know they're 12x1.5 but what style? Acorn, hex? Thanks.

With a solid load in the rack, you are getting a LOT of lift.
25lbs each is 250lbs only if the load is straight up, evenly spread. Aerodynamic load is going to lift the front, and if the front clamps fail, it'll be all over very quickly with 8 more failed clamps.

I'd trust the rearmost 8 clamps, but I wouldn't trust anything shy of u-bolts for the front.
