    They're around $80. You have to drill holes for the ball mounts.

    Radiator. I've read not to get simple green on aluminum.
    My engine bay would be considered spotless to most so I don't need anything real strong. I'd just like to knock the dealership shine slime off it and then use the 303 for protection.

    I was gonna say something similar. A full sized flag exerts a lot of drag, and will have a lot of leverage on that pole.

    Heck yes, you're doing well!

    I've not read anything about SG & aluminum not being friends. I'll look into that a little later.

    My radiator is probably the only 'dirty thing on the truck as well.

    Just some dead bugs in there....I'd probably just use water and a scrub brush.

    One thing you could do that might help, a fixed cable to the top of the pole, with a turnbuckle so that you can add tension, run to an anchor in the front of the bed, maybe use one of the bed rail cleats.

    I sprayed that on my skid plate and it doesn't take much to scratch the liner off. Hope it fairs better for your application.
