    Is there a way to tell the different levels? Their lca's are the most expensive on rock auto, and are in the daily driver section, not the economy like the moogs.

    What kind/grade of oil are you using right now? I am switching to standard oil 10w-30, and see if it is slowing down the consumption. I guess there are no harm to use standard. Engine won't know lol

    I use conventional 5w-30. I had a slight leak and switching from syn back to conventional seemed to stop it.

    I'm sure either would do fine. I have u-bolts to secure mine, and my friend was carriage bolts. No real difference between them.

    Well I swap stuff on my rack enough, that i'm thinking Carrige bolts, just to decrease the number of bolts to undo. Just looking into options to store the annex room lol

    1/4” carriage bolts, six of them, and 1.5” fender washers. They’re rock solid.

    I’d recommend a quick disconnect of some sort. I’ll get you a link once I get home. It’s like $50 and meant for trolling motors but looks like it’ll work perfectly

    That’d be cool! For my rack I was going to build two cross bars that I can bolt on over the plano to put kayak holders on for those rare occasions I need to transport kayaks and also have a bed full of camping gear

    I forgot to pee before I left work (rookie mistake) and now it’s storming like crazy and I’m in traffic. God dammit.

    I wish I could carry kayaks. I'd need to ghetto strap them to the RTT now that that's in the way lol

    Yeah same. I could see the appeal though for those that live in a sketchy area though and don’t want gear up there all the time.
