Thanks. My frustration is that I had a crap ton of work done in May that addressed a leaky oil pan and the rear main (13k ago). So everything seemed dry. Nothing showed up until the switch.

Synthetic blend v. RMS question

I'll go ahead and preface by saying I need to turn in my man card as I have the local oil change place do the changes. In my (lame) defense, it's usually cheaper than if I bought the oil/filter...

You're right - a bike probably won't. Bear in mind that if you replace your spare with a bigger, you're only adding the difference in weight. You stick three Wally World bikes averaging 30 pounds...

With the Roadmaster extension I'm able to open my tailgate most of the way - easily far enough to get most anything I need out - with bikes on. With bikes off, I can open it all the way.

Even if you have the wrong speedo gear, I'm not sure that's the entire issue. I could see a 2 or 3 mpg (maybe up to 5) but you're darn near half where it should be. Are you still driving in 4H most...

Longest doorless ride probably 4 hours this summer. For the weather question, from March to late November, I rarely have anything on the Jeep (except the TJKini) so getting caught in bad summer...

I have a Softopper frameless and love it. Make sure you get the one that uses the factory door surrounds as the one that uses the Softopper surrounds is reportedly not that great.

The only negative I have with my TJKini from SpiderWeb is that at night you can't really see the stars. During the day this past summer, though, I loved it as it kept things cooler, was a good...

Sorry about that. I assumed road because you don't see a whole lot of carbon wheels on mountain bikes. My experience has been that they're more common on road. That's not to say that I don't see...
