It also doesn't sound like the thing to have on an off-road truck. I'd hate to have my oil accidently drained out in the middle of nowhere.
If someone would like to drain my oil, the drain plug bolt really isn't going to stop them. And I really wouldn't mind that much as long as they change the filter while they're at it...
But, if you don't feel comfortable installing it b/c you're worried it will get knocked off while driving over a big rock or something, then don't install it. They do offer extra protection with a retainer clip they sell for an extra buck for tractors since they go over a lot of brush, but the design looks study enough that it would probably fine w/o it.
I just got my truck and I've heard that most ppl have to remove the skid plate to prevent oil from getting on it. So I got one with the nipple to keep from having to do that.
Anyway, I just thought it would be a good deal for TW users so I posted it here. Especially after seeing the 10% discount that was posted a couple of days ago... it may not be around that long.
