i have tried a few after similar forum chatter.  im betting my system is just fucked from running overloaded GVW on a tune.

i have tried bulk fill, walmart, or Fleet pride with same result.  i refuse to run mopar at the 10X cost.  i also use about 3X more than the brotow rigs on most forums with 2500s and dubs.   I have a DEF test kit that i carry in the truck, i have never tested my tank out of spec.

Here’s what we have on the Peak DEF…
 
(80) 2.5 gallon jugs/skid
 
$11.29/jug
$903.20/skid
 
Smike this is what I have bought for my yard trucks.
How is this pricing?

bulk fill at truck stops is usually 2.50-3.00/ gallon

usually at walmart or Regional International i pay 7-9$ for a 2.5gallon jug out the door. 

Peak i think is one of the higher end fluids and


if your buying skids at 4.50/gallon i think you could do better with drums if your usage is enough to over come shelf life and operator pumping issues.   

I drum wouldnt help me as my usage is low and half my usage is on the road...

new glass installed.  cams show took guy about 40 minutes to do. 

glass says mopar on it and looks factory.  insurance billed 408$, fully covered.

Do you have auto dim headlights or pressure sending wipers?   
That’s the real reason for factory glass...

They actually removed all that annoying shit from the rams that Cherokees have a few years back
