Either one will ride above the crossmember, but there really is no need to use the nipple version, and IMHO, if you wheel, it might be prone to snagging.
The only need I would see for the nipple version would be if you have a skidplate that covers the entire pan. The nipple version would allow you to attach a hose to it and route it through a hole in the plate. Completely mess-free if you have a V6 with the filter on top.
