Out of curiosity, anyone know why the original bulbs have a blue 'rubber' over the bulb? This is obviously why the dash lights have a greenish tint and aren't that bright to begin with.
I think the rubber on the bulb is to keep you from touching the glass and should be removed before you install them.

thedawgshow Changed oil, oil filter, and air filer. However, when my 7 year old assistant handed me my torque wrench, it seemed as one of my sons had been playing with it. It was loaded up to about 50 ft lbs and the set screw was not tight. I went ahead and torqued the drain plug to what I hope is 25 ft lbs. Now I have to figure out how to test to see if it is still in calibration, and if not, how to fix it.

With stock sized tires it'll throw you in every other seat when you hit bumps and such with these tires it rides good no jarring
