I left them exposed and bolted them down tight then sprayed some seal stuff on it.

I just did the same thing to my battery terminals, only $5 at O-Reillys. The factory terminals had shredded. haha those quick discos look nice though, I didn't get that.

I would skip the Optima since the price is still the same even though they are made in Mexico now. Sears makes some very nice AGM batteries though.

I'll be waiting a very long time for this to happen anyway xD the Die Hard is only a little over one year old.

Replaced the tranny pan filter with a WIX and gasket with Fel-Pro (no RTV). Also gave the pan a nice cleaning. Hopefully this stops all leaking! So far so good! Cross your fingers for me!

Good luck I always hate trans pan leaks. On mine I dropped the pan multiple times before realizing the quick disconnect fittings that tap into the tranny that the tranny cooler lines hook to were leaking. Replaced those and so far so good. Just something to keep ur eye on

Quick question: Did you have to do the trimming on the front bumper? Was there rubbing?

Nope didn't have to. My tires aren't big enough to rub. They are 235/75/15 which is around 28" in diameter. They are still within stock spec. (225-245) Hopefully down the road I will get 30s on 15s/16s

Got home from work today and checked the pan. Found some slow drips I wiped around the pan edge and got some red. Decided to grab the torque wrench and check the torque. I didn't budge the dial AT ALL and all of those bolts needed at least one full turn to be 12.5ft-lbs. The temperature got to a little below forty last night, then back up to fifty today, let alone the tranny warming up to high temperatures driving at 50mph. I'm assuming this is normal, and hopefully that is the reason it was leaking.
