The Rotella band wagon got popular elsewhere on the web when the SM/GF-4 oil specs came out with less anti-wear additives.

As more and more scoobie owner's starting having bearing problems, they looked to the more robust oils for protection.

Like a drug? See the quote in my thread above by a tribologist. That's a no BS recommendation. I would run it, but I don't want to give up Friction Modifiers which diesel/gas oils do not have. Friction Modifiers help with fuel economy and may make you go FaSTaR.
