    In all fairness , the techs may have set the u bolts to the 37 ftlbs as per the FSM and ARB/OME's tech support calls for greasing the Dakars at the isolators to correct squeaking , they sent me a greasing procedure when I originally enquired about the squeaking in my Daks

    What about those squeaky leafs? My truck squeaks terribly going over speed bumps or terrain that causes the truck to articulate the length of the truck. In particular, I was driving along the downtown Savannah (GA) cobblestone street and was a bit embarrassed at the noise my squeaky truck was making. Have not had it to the dealer yet. Guessed body mounts maybe.

    Bed liner rattle can is permanent. People use plasti dip for the sole reason that it is removable. Obviously a bed liner material is going to hold up to the elements better but that is permanent. You can never return to what it previously looked like. I have plasti dipped quite a few items with great results. Never ever seen it dull in color and can be taken off and re applied at any time if you know how to apply it originally. It has its uses but if you are looking for a permanent stick then rattle can bed liner won't do that either. It will eventually come off. Go buy yourself a hvlp gun and a compressor and go buy some quality shit if you want it permanent but until you do that whatever you use isn't going to last for more than a couple of years

    Amen! My emblems have been done for almost a year and I inspect them for peeling all the time....nothing yet! Would I put it on a front bumper during love bug season in Florida? Hell no but that's not what it's made for!!
