    With the way I have the flat bed mounted now, the weight rests mostly on the frame.

    So last week I had enough of my truck marking its territory. So I bought some dye and found the leak. The O-ring on the Oil filter cooler adapter thingy. So bought the stuff and decided to give it a whirl... Yeah 4 hours later, a new seal, O-ring, two oil line connectors and so far it's not leaking. To be fair though, it was a pain to get off. Didn't want to come off at all, my buddy and I pulled as hard as we could and it wouldn't budge. So we had to bang it off from the top. Then the seal was fragmenting, so we had to pull the whole thing out to get the seal. Then it took 2 hours getting the seal off. Since it was really on that thing. I swear I watch videos and people are like 'it's about an hour job' and my truck is like 'yeah no I don't think so'.... But with any luck it'll be leak free now.
