Jim, get yourself a can of WD40 because you obviously don't know what you are talking about. I have cases of PB blaster and use it all the time and it's a great penetrating oil. WD40 believe it or not works better and lasts longer at lubricating parts. I have a noisy door hinge on my jeep. PB lasts one to two days before the hinge dries up again. With WD40 it keeps it quiet til my next oil change.

sorry, I don't let that crap in my house, for door hinges I use whilte lithum in the spray can, WD-40 don't have the properties to protect the metal against the shear strength. your hinges might not sqeek, but they will still wear out with WD-40. but its your truck, use what you want.

White lithium will not penetrate a door hinge and roller door check.

sorry, you can't degrease and lube at the same time. The problem with it is it evaporates, that is why it was so good to use on old cars when the distributor got wet. yes it might look like its lubing something, but it doesn't last a day. PB blaster is a penetrate and a lube.

Yes you can degrease and lube at the same time.  most penetrating oils are just that, oil.  All the do is dilute the sticky grease.  WD, on an old distributor, would "displace" the moisture, not dry it up.  Spray your distributor and wait a week, drive down a dusty road and see how much dust is stuck to the "dry" distributor.
Personally I use both.  PB to break it loose, WD as a light lubricant.  My door hinges on my old Explorer, had the same problem Vile had.  I had better luck with WD over the PB, however even better luck if I used engine oil a week later, after it "freed" up.
