I just joined the club. Ordered one. I had been looking at the plug the last time I towed and said to myself, "I wonder how long the metal will stay shiny?" Hopefully a little lonfer with this.

Maybe we can have a ROTM for plug caps.

I honestly don’t use one . I’ve had them b4 and all it did was corrode up my connections. So I just blow them out every other oil change and seems to work better. Mud sucks.

DieselDC is right --- I just checked mine with the cap on it (had been raining quite a bit the last few weeks) and sure enough, there was some corrosion present. I repositioned the plug so that water won't collect in it (upside down), gave it a good spritz of cleaner and that should do the trick. Everyone should check theirs.

As usual, I am late to the party, but I sure like those molded plugs.

When using a cap, you need to position the plug facing upward so it dont collect water, else the connections will sit in a water bath.

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
