I have a hard time understanding why consumers feel they have the right to be upset/outraged/etc. over the price of a proprietary consumable for a non-essential product. This isn't Soylent Green. If you don't like the pricing, don't buy the product.

I know it isn't what you are asking for but a cheap alternative would be a LED night light. I got a free energy saving box from my electric provider that included four LED night lights. They are flat squares with a LED screen that is somewhere around

Yes, I didn't link the other threads but I have created/posted this application for my bro-in-law before (as you can see the previous UOA results from before, the first was Amsoil ASM 0w-20 before it was labeled SSO and the rest all AFE 0w-20; IIRC).

Wow, looks like you're doing something right! Good engine and good oil. Just think of the money you're saving compared to those people bring their cars to Jiffy Lube every 3k miles!

The Mobil 1 75W-90 will be fine in both. Use a limited-slip additive for the Jeep. Not sure if it's needed for the Trailblazer.

If your not using gear oil in the 8.8 then your asking for trouble down the road. You already shelled out dough to weld it in and slapped a nice cover on it, why cheap out on the most critical part? My rig's 8.8 had an aftermarket cover for only a s
