Does your oil look normal? If it looks chocolatey it is a HG. But you can blow the HG just beside the combustion chamber and it won't get into the crankcase. Wait till engine cools and top up the coolant and see if a fast idle will make it spill or

Pulled the trigger on the M/S today. $70 MIR and the young man installing the tires gave me $100 for the set of my old Wranglers. He said he has an old truck that he only puts used on and that this 31X10.5R15LT size is getting tougher to find used.

I had a Pure-1 tear around 5k miles as well. I have a Wix that has been in service since Jan that replaced it. It will be removed this week. Not at all worried about the Wix, but I wouldn't trust a purolator on anything I cared about.
