    I've been running that and the 20k mile filter mobile one makes. I have ran it in every vehicle we have owned since it first came out. I even sent my oil for a test and they said it looked great at 15k miles.

    I'm glad to hear that thanks for the response. My old dinosaur oil looked pretty bad. I got behind on an oil change by about 3 months. Then all this COVID stuff happened so I'm glad I took advantage and made the switch.

    Got a neat little obd reader in. Was attempting to "Butt Dyno" the setup with cam gears, Volant intake and urd MAF calibrator. I know these numbers are probably a bit off but it was fun to see where I am currently. +28 hp sounds about right. This is with 33's, no regear and some armor.

    I'd really like to try that Thule Hullavator and remember seeing review vids on it. Glad to hear you like it. I recently picked up a Hobie and been concerned with how to load it on my own easier on my racks. Noticed on the website the Hullavator has a Load Capacity at 75 lbs. Pretty sure my kayak is pushing that already. How heavy is yours? Does it clear your side mirrors okay?

    Did possibly my favorite mod to my truck!


    Dear sweet baby Fuckin Jesus is it so much more peaceful in my truck!!

    I was one of those with a weather stripping TSB if under 20k miles (I wasn’t). I had the howling wind kazoo noise over 65mph on windy days. As bad was the “clicking” noise right by my head, from the rubber sticking together and unsticking. Sticking unsticking. That shit was relentless. Tried flexible tubing. Tried dielectric Grease. Tried silicon spray. Finally just replaced it today.

    Fucking A what a difference.
