Oz they were probably using a roof flashing. We use a lot of firestone products and they make various sizes of flashings that just require a clean surface with their primer scrubbed on then peel the paper backing off and stick the flashing.

Are there torque specifications for the bolts on the Dakar Leaf pack?
Meaning, do I need to torque the bolt that goes on the center pin down or any other bolt on the leaf pack?

I'm trying to have everything all ready & tightened up for install day

The Factory Service Manual doesn't list a torque spec for the center bolt, and I haven't seen a published one for the OME part. I used 30ft/lbs and called it good.

Funny. Every time my Dakars get squeaky, I know it's time to wash my truck. I juts hit the Dakars with the spray nozzle and the squeak goes away until it's time for another washing

When I tooK my Dakars apart, I noticed that the center pin was bent. I was able to put everything back in place and all but was wondering if this will pose me a problem later down the road. What say you?

I use a screwdriver from each side , do one leaf at a time , for instance , I pry apart the top leafs , slide the EPDM strip in , centring the strip , release that leaf , seperate the next ones down , slide the tail of the EPDM in from each side , release those ones
